Thanks for this feedback, it is, as Mark has mentioned, extremely valuable.

I suspect you're using the old bookmarklets. Try the following stable link:


and the latest version:


(I've updated the older link to point out that they are outdated.)

I've tried it on your research page, and I think it solves comment #1,
although I notice a lot of duplicate triples. I'll have to investigate,
as there are surely bugs left to iron out. At least you're not getting
wrong triples, though, and your issue with mixing microformats with RDFa
should resolve itself.

>            </span>

So I actually think the above makes sense, and that it *should* work...
at least if I'm interpreting it correctly. To make sure I am, let me
decompose this a bit. Take out the @href for now:

<span class="foaf:Person" rel="swrc:author">
    <span  property="foaf:name">
        Peter Mika

Here, I'm assuming you mean:

<> swrc:author _:span0 .

_:span0 rdf:type foaf:Person ;
        foaf:name "Peter Mika" .

(If you wanted the first triple to say something about than <>, you
could wrap the whole thing in a div about=....).

Now, adding the href (which irks me because @href means clickable ...
but let's pass on this issue for a second) means, in my mind, that you
want to replace _:span0 with that URL. Am I correct?

If so, I think your markup should work, though we need to think more
carefully about whether the syntax rules are consistent enough for this
to work.

Let me know if I've gotten this right. Thanks again for the comments!
