Re: Accessibility for Re: Updated Wiki to cover proposal


as others will want to use these terms, I think it'd be good to have  
the following description of each term, if possible. The list is  
derived from the lists we used in defining DC terms and it is what we  
will use in education for the ISO educational metadata terms - it  
seems to make everything very clear and to simply give rise to a  
useful structure for the terms. It also helps with RDF understanding  
of the terms which can be helpful to people wanting extensions who are  
not really sure of the rules they need to observe.

Property Name


Linguistic indicator



Content values




You ask about the property value 'text' - I think it is better to have  
literal and non-literal - and to make sure all 'names' etc are defined  
as non-linguistic. Others will know more about this than me - but  
that's what I believe is best....
