What I want to understand, is how you guys anticipate using vocabularies in this project.   And what we need to  do to lay that foundation.

Thanks -- Ann

But I, myself, am not totally clear on how this stuff works vis--vis vocabularies. Would someone be willing to give me (and anyone else who's interested) a small tutorial?

In terms of creating new vocabularies, an online tutorial would be good as well. However, like many Semantic Web efforts, the tooling is still in a pretty primitive state, despite dozens if not hundreds of academic papers on the topic. If one has money, Topbraid Composer is a great product and the one I used successfully to model vCard a while back.

I've sent an email to the semantic web list to get an update to see if there's any usable vocabulary tools aimed at non-experts.
