Farhana, is a collaboratively constructed vocabulary.

Linked Data is about denoting (naming or referring to) entities 
*unambiguously* using HTTP URI so an entity name resolves to a 
description of its referent (i.e., what it denotes).

With the above definitions in place, in regards to and Linked 
Data, it so happens that doesn't mandate *unambiguous* entity 
denotation. Thus, in the context of, you can have an HTTP URI 
that denotes both a Entity and the Web Document (content can be of any 
format) that describes the aforementioned Entity [1][2].

Hope this helps.


[1] -- HTTP URI that denotes an entity

[2] -- sample report from a 
utility (called Vapor) that attempts to makes sense (discern meaning) of 
what the HTTP URI above denotes.
