RE: question on the RDFa validation service...

Thanks Olivier for this final clarification!

So, to conclude:

1. Use 

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML+RDFa 1.0//EN"
 "http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/DTD/xhtml-rdfa-1.dtd">

in your XHTML document.

Note: Even if the current DTD might be a bit outdated,
AFAIK the URL is a stable one. We are currently work like 
hell to get the syntax/rules, the DTD, and the Test Cases
done and in sync. Stay tuned!

2. Use 

http://validator.w3.org/

to validate you XHTML documents, and please let 
us (public-rdf-in-xhtml-tf@w3.org) and the validator 
community (www-validator@w3.org) know, when you're
having troubles.

Cheers,
	Michael
