1. version info has been deleted from the editor's version of the overview 
(and the date has been updated on the overview).
it is in the normal place - <A HREF="http://www.ksl.stanford.edu/people/dlm/webont/OWLOverview.htm">

2 in response to questions about the example.
I wrote the wines ontology in the late 80s as a test example.  It was first 
published in the living with classic paper (that the guide already points 
to).  It was also distributed with the releases of classic.
i along with a number of colleagues used it as the basis of a tutorial for 
the best pointer for that tutorial is
<A HREF="http://www.bell-labs.com/project/classic/papers/ClassTut/ClassTut.html">http://www.bell-labs.com/project/classic/papers/ClassTut/ClassTut.html</A>

(that is the lisp version of the tutorial.  there is also a c++ version of 
the tutorial at:
<A HREF="http://www.bell-labs.com/project/classic/papers/NeoTut/NeoTut.html">http://www.bell-labs.com/project/classic/papers/NeoTut/NeoTut.html</A>

i took the version of the wines ontology distributed with CLASSIC and i 
loaded it into ontolingua and then dumped it in daml+oil.  I then cleaned up 
the dump (with some help from jessica jenkins) and then submitted that 
cleaned up version to the daml ontology library (the guide also points to 

I also worked with Natasha Noy on ANOTHER tutorial on ontologies and used the 
wines ontology as the basis for that tutorial.  that is the tutorial that the 
guide currently points to.

Finally, with Mike and Chris, the current version of the guide wines ontology 

so for an update to the guide, there is another reference that should be 
i would propose the wording below which is a small update to what mike 
currently has:

"In order to provide a consistent set of examples throughout the guide, we 
have created a <A HREF="http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-owl-guide-20030210/wine.owl">wine ontology</A>. This is an OWL DL ontology. Some of our 
discussion will focus on OWL Full capabilities and is so marked. This wine 
ontology is a significant modification of a DAML version of a wine ontology 
(point here to http://www.daml.org/ontologies/76) initially developed as an <A HREF="http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-owl-guide-20030210/#wine3">
example</A> of how to build a description logic ontology,  then was expanded to 
be a tutorial (point here to the lisp version of  of the classic tutorial <A HREF="http://www.bell-labs.com/project/classic/papers/ClassTut/ClassTut.html">
http://www.bell-labs.com/project/classic/papers/ClassTut/ClassTut.html</A> ) and 
was expanded again to be a more general <A HREF="http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-owl-guide-20030210/#wine2">tutorial</A> on building ontologies. 

The guide currently has (and it should keep this)
