Karen,

This is great! How would you feel about folk adding links to Wikipedia
for more details? I can't vouch for the technical quality of these
articles, but they often have useful high level info and related links
at least.

So my question is whether to link these directly from the terms in
your list, eg. >FRBR<, or to mark the hyperlink explicitly as being a
wikipedia link, which would make it easier to add a local page about
FRBR here at W3C, which might have pointers to public-lld discussions
and other stuff that wouldn't fit in Wikipedia's page.

I found these by googling terms from your list...

Am happy to add them, but not sure which linking style would be most
appropriate...

cheers,
