/ Joshua Allen <joshuaa@microsoft.com> was heard to say:
| I have resisted this permathread.  We have been through this so many
| times; the second assertion:
|
| http://xmlns.com/wordnet/1.6/Hoary_Marmot is_a "web page"
|
| is wrong.  The URI identifies a resource; and the "web page" is a
| _representation_ of the resource.  It is not _the_ _resource_.

No, web pages are a class of resource and I can assert that
http://xmlns.com/wordnet/1.6/Hoary_Marmot is a member of that class.

| Furthermore, the first statement is also flawed.  In the context of the
| example given; where you are using the WordNet namespace, you can only
| say:
|
| http://xmlns.com/wordnet/1.6/Hoary_Marmot is_a "word"

Fair point.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
