There are links to the original sources
in .rdf and .trig output:

If the original resource was a RDF resource (e.g. DBpedia, Geonames, BBC),
there are owl:sameAs links as well. E.g. London with a link to Geonames:

If you follow the "Source Details" link at the top right hand side in HTML
pages, you'll see our triples grouped by source document.

Yes, thanks for the suggestion. We'll add <link/> tags to HTML pages in a

We are probably not going to provide RDFa in the near future, since I
believe it would just increase the content-length of HTML pages, but not
provide any added benefit since RDF output is available separately. In large
resources (like London above), we sample resource links in the HTML output
(with links to "and X more..."), and I'm not sure how RDFa would fit in
