Media Types URIs

Dear DXWG,

I’ve just put up a small API to deliver Media Types via URIs so if you want to quote text/html, you can do so like this: and get a simple web page or this:

@prefix dct: <> .
@prefix rdfs: <> .
@prefix xsd: <> .

<> a dct:FileFormat ;
    rdfs:label "turtle"^^xsd:string ;
    dct:contributor <>,
        <> .

This just replaces a system that did this using but which has been down for years (see

The reason for doing this now is that we are really using dct:format a lot but don’t have dereferenceable URIs for it.
The register of Media Types is here:

Consider this tool actively developed so you can raise issues ( or get things changed if they aren’t great!
