>MnM is an annotation tool which provides both automated and semi-automated
>support for annotating web pages with semantic contents. MnM integrates a web
>browser with an ontology editor and provides open APIs to link MnM to ontology
>servers and for integrating MnM with information extraction tools. 
>MnM works with a number of representation languages, including RDF, 
>DAML+OIL and OCML. The annotated documents can be used to populate 
>ontologies or as a training corpus for information extraction (IE) 
>engines. The MnM IE plug-in is generic and documented and therefore 
>developers can add new IE mechanisms to the system.
>
>The version of MnM available for download has been integrated with 
>Amilcare Version 2.1, a tool for Adaptive Information Extraction 
>from Texts.  Amilcare has been developed by Fabio Ciravegna, 
>University of Sheffield, F.Ciravegna@dcs.shef.ac.uk, 
>http://www.dcs.shef.ac.uk/~fabio. This version of Amilcare has been 
>released as demo as part of the MnM tool and CAN BE USED ONLY AS 
>PLUG-IN FOR THE  MnM tool. It cannot be used in stand alone or as 
>plugin for any other annotation tool.
>Please contact Fabio Ciravegna if you want to use Amilcare in 
>commercial applications, distribute it to other colleagues or 
>integrate it in other tools.

>MnM is provided "as is" and it is free of charge for non commercial

>For more information about MnM you can have a look at the published papers
>(http://kmi.open.ac.uk/projects/akt/MnM/publications.html), and at the user
>manual and developer guide 
>(http://kmi.open.ac.uk/projects/akt/MnM/documents.html).

Enrico - thanks for this information.  when do you think this will 
talk OWL?  If in the near future, we could include it in our 
implementation report.
  thanks
