Hi all,

Thanks to some magical hacking by Elias with a combination of JavaScript 
and ARC running as the SPARQL back-end, I was able to run my JavaScript 
RDFa library through the test suite in Firefox. I found a couple of 
edge-case bugs, e.g. about="" not always handled properly, <head> didn't 
have its default about="", and I was missing some reserved keywords (go 
Test Suite!). These are now fixed.

At this point, it looks like the RDFa bookmarklets pass all tests except 
#11 (the XMLLiteral issue we need to discuss). 2-3 tests had to be 
checked manually because of some problem in my test-runner bootstrap 
(which Elias is helping me fix already), but otherwise the results are 
truly automated using JavaScript + ARC.

This is awesome. Michael, Manu, and Ivan: great job on the Test Suite 
and test cases, and Elias you rock for finding a solution to the 
JavaScript test suite runner (which you need to tell other folks about 
as soon as you're ready!)
