RDF Validation Question

Hi Jeremy

If I reference a description identified with a
namespace qualified ID then the RDF validator does not
make this association, E.g.:

	<rdf:Description rdf:ID="one">
		<sw:name rdf:resource="#cr:test"/>
	</rdf:Description>
	<rdf:Description rdf:ID="cr:test">
		<sw:first_name>xxx</sw:first_name>
		<sw:last_name>yyy</sw:last_name>
	</rdf:Description>

However, if the ID is not namespace qualified then the
validator makes the association.

However, Dave Beckett's Redland RDF Database Demo at
http://www.redland.opensource.ac.uk/demo appears to
make the association when namespace ID's are used.

Is it correct to use namespaces with ID's with in RDF?

Thanks for your assistance.

Stephen Williams
