> Hi Ivan,


>> 2. You claim that there is a difference between XHTML 1 and XHTML5/HTML5 in terms of terms.
>> I think there aren't, at least that was the intention... Section 3 of the XHTML+RDFa document refers to http://www.w3.org/2011/rdfa-context/xhtml-rdfa-1.1 as the definition of terms and prefixes. That file includes only the minimal set of the three: license, role, and describedby.
> When I look up that page I see a lot of predefined terms? If indeed

> been prevented, which is good (such as 'chapter' being reset in a
> scenario using BIBO in a @vocab). If they are not, we should address
> this situation.

Doh! Sh...t. I know that we have mixed up this URI so many time...

Shane, the reference in the XHTML+RDFa should be to rdfa-1.1 and not to xhtml-rdfa-1.1! xhtml-rdfa-1.1 was from the days when XHTML+RDFa borrowed the prefix definition from the core and indeed took over the term definition from the old system. As far as I know we decided _not_ to do that, and use only the very limited set of prefixes. Ie, the reference in the document is wrong:-(

Sigh... we should never touch that stuff again.

Thanks for Niklas for having spotted this...
