Re: Tasks in support of HTML Microdata

Sorry - I read the 12 December 2011 draft a bit more thoroughly. I see
the spec includes Turtle as optional in section 1.2:

"The document may be published in a number of other RDF serialization
formats, such as N3 [N3] or Turtle [TURTLE]. Any serialisation must be
transformable automatically and in a standard manner to an RDF Graph,
using technologies such as GRDDL [GRDDL-PRIMER]."

But " Processing the WebID Profile" does not mention this.

So the immediate question w.r.t Turtle is whether or not to *require* Turtle?

I would suggest yes, for the reasons in my previous email, quoted below...
