Here is an example:

http://www.phonk.net/Images/Aigues-Mortes/991028-Aigues-Mortes.jpg;application%2Frdf%2Bxml

You can also get it when you request
http://www.phonk.net/Images/Aigues-Mortes/991028-Aigues-Mortes.jpg
with an Accept header of application/* or application/rdf+xml.

(Most of the photos on that site have such RDF metadata.) This returns:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Link: <http://www.phonk.net/style/photo-rdf.css>; rel=stylesheet

But Mozilla shows the source. Maybe because it doesn't know that
application/rdf+xml is a form of XML...
