Hi Tadej, Guys,

A typographical question, in the word file you have:


Text Analysis is primarily intended for textual content. Nevertheless, 
the data category can also be used in multi-media contexts. Example: 
objects on an image could be annotated with DBpedia IRIs. [CL1] <#_msocom_1>

When serializing the ITS Text Analysis 
category markup in HTML, the preferred way is to serialize in RDFa Lite 
or Microdata due to the existing search and crawling infrastructure that 
is able to consume these formats.

But the two paragraphs seem to be separate topics, so they should be 
under separate Note heading I think - assuming the issue about RDFs 
mapping is a note?

Further, I don't know if I agree with the wording of the second 
paragraph. Sure, the example makes the valid point that Text Analysis 
can do the same job as the RDFa lite. But these are potentially 
different use cases. For example it may be that the authors add text 
annotation to feed into a subsequent terminology process, but use ITS so 
they can strip out the ta annotation so it can be easily stripped out 
again later, i.e. they have no intention to add the equivalent markup 
into the HTML. Also, if the confidence score is a relevant piece of 
information, then the RDFa solution should be 'preferred'.

I'd suggest either moving this note to some best practice, or change the 
wording just so it highlights the equivalence of the mapping, but 
doesn't try to go into detail of when one approach is preferred over the
