Re: MiniSKOS update

I'm having trouble to understand how things like "Wimbledon Tennis
Tournament", "Roger Federer", "Tennis" are ConceptCodes, in particular, not
sure where "code" comes from here, or help. This won't make as much sense
as Topic for webmasters.

What is the difference between the 'name' and the 'codeValue' of a
ConceptCode. Maybe some examples would help?
