There has been alot of talk about whether when one makes a statement about a
resource identified by an "http:" prefixed URI: is one making a statement
about the resource or the HTML representation of the resource.

It seems to me that when one is talking about a resource, one is talking
about a resource, and when one is talking about a representation, one is
talking about a representation.

RDF has no intrinsic problem with this. One can model a HTTP transaction in
RDF, in which case there ought be no question whether one is talking about
the resource or some document returned as a representation of the resource.

For example: http://www.openhealth.org/xmtp/HTTP
