All-
  My airport info is;

:Hendler-Airport a apt:airport;
   apt:icao "KBWI";
   apt:name "Baltimore, Baltimore-Washington International Airport, 
MD, United States";
   apt:latitude "39-10-00N";
   apt:longitude "076-1-00W";
   apt: elevation "59m".


Please note the syntactic difference - I vastly prefer N3 notation 
[1] to the RDF.  I'd like us to consider using N3 in some of the 
documents we produce - it is more readable in many ways and it can be 
mapped into RDF easily -- a tool for this is at [2]

  btw, the ugliness of the RDF in my netscape 6.1 window, and the long 
time it took loading into IE, remind me -- we should consider what 
sort of mime type we want to use for web ontologies and whether we 
need to register a mime type or etc.  Anyone have any experience with 
this?  (Dan, what is RDF doing about this issue?)
