Hi Joćo Paulo,

[Sorry to be slow to respond, just too busy :(]

Many thanks for this. It is definitely an improvement over the earlier 
version. Does this technology offer clickable images as as well?

The diagram shows the range of org:siteAddress as being vcard:Vcard yet 
this is no longer the case, vcard is now simply a recommended option. 
With your tooling is it possible to grey out boxes?

The use of double '::' is incorrect from an RDF point of view. With your 
tooling is it possible to use single ':' instead?

Aesthetically it's a little uninspiring but acceptable.

Do other working members having opinions on whether to adopt this (with 
above tweaks) in preference the current diagram?
