Dear all,

I have a question about SWRL's atoms. I am sorry if this question seems 
trivial to most of you, but I wish to understand clearly what is going on.

I would like to know what is the relationship between an unconditional 
fact described in SWRL and a property (with domain and range) defined in 
OWL. Stated differently, I would like to know how a property defined in 
OWL could be reused in SWRL. If I have an ontology already described in 
OWL, how can I make use of the properties already existing?

In SWRL, an individualPropertyAtom has a "property" attribute. It is 
written in the SWRL submission that this attribute is "a reference to an 
individual property name". What does this mean?

Thanks for your help and your patience,
