Dear group,

During the previous teleconference we talked about a comprehensive model 
for "Content" which includes Web content and local file content, as well 
as HTTP content. Please find a rough outline of this model below, and an 
initial RDFS for the schema attached. Please send comments and feedback 
to the list for discussion.


#1: Content class
  - generic for any kind of (e-)content such as content available on the 
Web or on a local storage
  - introduces the "date" property which refers to the date at which the 
content was actually fetched
  - introduces the "source" property which could be used to record the 
actual source of the content

#2: WebContent class (subclass of Content)
  - for any content that is available on the Web, including via FTP, 
gopher, or any other protocol
  - introduces the URI property which could be used to identify the Web 

#3: FileContent class (subclass of Content)
  - for any content that is available on flat files, that is not via the 
Web (such as shared drives etc)
  - introduces the filename property which could be used to identify the 
non-Web resource

#3: HTTPContent class (subclass of WebContent)
  - for any Web content that is available via the HTTP protocol
  - introduces the httpRequest/httpResponse properties which could be 
used to record the HTTP headers and/or content
  - the inherited date, URI, and source properties may be duplicated by 
the HTTP vocabulary
