Hi Micah,

Ok...I see your problem. Or rather mine, because I've assumed that the
RDF side of this is more obvious than it actually is. Sorry....

When triples are generated, the order doesn't matter. So as long as an
RDFa parser generates the three triples we're discussing, then it is
potentially conformant.

So when I said "exactly the same triples would be generated", I wasn't
meaning, "and in the same order"; they could be generated in any
order, as you have rightly pointed out, but no matter what happens,
you will get those three triples.

Regards,

Mark
