Of course, that was only a hypothetical example.  One interesting
serialization is based on CSS; I am really intrigued by this idea. Take
a look at [1], and at the example below:

] @namespace dc url(http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/)
] 
] :root {
]   dc|description: "A discussion of ... XML/RDF techniques.";
]   dc|creator: "Uche Ogbuji";
] }

This is similar to MKR (but I like CSS's brackets) [2]:

] <MKR
]    xmlns    ="http://rhm.cdepot.net/xml/"
]    xmlns:ex ="http://www.example.com/terms/"
]    xmlns:dc ="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">
] 
] Dave Beckett has
]    ex:homepage="http://purl.org/net/dajobe";
] document has
]    dc:title="RDF/XML Syntax Specification (Revised)",
]    ex:editor=Dave Beckett,
]    uri="http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-syntax-grammar";
] </MKR>
