On the BIONT call last Tuesday (July 11), we discussed some of the points
that Bill made in his email on XML vs. RDF. Based on a suggestion by Alan to
dig deeper into this question, we discussed the idea of using short examples
to illustrate the technical differences between XML vs. RDF.

For my colleagues, I created a simple example that I thought I would share
(attached) illustrating the difference between XML and RDF with respect to
the automated validation of semantic consistency.
