So I've saved a pure-HTML version of the document from the ReSpec.js source.

It can be previewed online here [1]. It currently has August 23 as the tentative publication date – that may need updating. We want the shortname /TR/rdf11-concepts .

To get the full spec with all supporting files:

    hg clone https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/rdf
    cd rdf
    hg up -r rdf-concepts-FPWD

Now the rdf-concepts subdirectory contains the spec. Overview.html is the main document. (There's just one other file.)

Off to you – let me know if you need anything else!

It is part of a larger effort to revise the RDF specifications as published in 2004. The most significant changes from the 2004 edition are: modified string literals, a section on skolemization of blank nodes, and many updated references to other specifications (including a change in terminology from “URI references” to “IRIs”). A fuller list of changes that have been made to date is provided in Appendix A. Various areas of work to be tackled in upcoming working drafts are highlighted throughout the document, but should not yet be understood as an exhaustive list.
