You should also take a look at OilEd [1] which supports DAML/OWL and
includes and integrated reasoner which can compute the class hierarchy
and check for inconsistencies. This has, e.g., been used to detect
errors in the OWL Guide (wines) ontology. IMHO, building anything
other than toy ontologies without such support amounts to recklessness.
