Dear all,

For your information:

As a conclusion to the issue raised on axiom S14 ("A resource has no more than one value of skos:prefLabel per language tag." [1]) and the following discussion on RDF literals and language tags [2], it is clear that S14 is not as accurately formulated as it should be.

Trying to acknowledge that as we can, we have added to the SKOS Reference errata [3] the following item:
Readers have commented that the formulation of S14, "A resource has no more than one value of skos:prefLabel per language tag", may leave room for unintended interpretations. S14 should be understood as the following:
"A resource has no more than one value of skos:prefLabel per language tag, and no more than one value of skos:prefLabel without language tag."

The current SKOS RDF Namespace Document [4] and its OWL1-DL version [5] have been updated accordingly.

In the same time, Hugh Glaser (see below) has noticed an editorial lapse with the HTML SKOS Namespace document [6]: when one clicks on the hyperlink "Definition: Section 5. Lexical Labels", one does not reach the SKOS Reference as one should. Since we cannot change documents in the W3C Rec space ("TR/") easily, we decided to "bypass" this document, having the SKOS Namespace redirect to a changeable version--just as it is for the RDF versions of SKOS.

For now, http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core# will thus redirect to a corrected page [7]. We've set up a "latest version" of the HTML namespace at http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core.html.

This will allow us to solve similar small issues in the future, should you spot any, in the coming third year of SKOS' life as an official W3C standard!

Thanking all of you again for the precious feedback you keep sending,

Antoine Isaac & Ivan Herman, on behalf of the SKOS Recs editors

none of the "Definition: Section 5. Lexical Labels" work.
You might want to get this fixed.
The html document that this leads to is:
Since this has been extracted from
At least I think that is what happened.
