/ Shane McCarron <shane@aptest.com> was heard to say:
| Just a little more data here.  Every XHTML family markup language,

| <html version="XHTML+RDFa 1.0" ... >

Yes, I suppose that's sufficient. I get the impression that no attempt
to persuade the working group to add a statement along the lines
"In order to be interpreted as RDFa, a document MUST have {some explicit
marker}", no matter how passionate, would succeed.

You may record that the submitter is satisfied, at least for the
moment, albeit very reluctantly, with rejection of his request for a
change. And that he's taken an "I told you so" chip which he may play

                                        Be seeing you,
