This reminds me of a question I meant to ask the list about a month ago,
but forgot.

I recently helped a friend launch a travel-related site[0] (not a blog,
per se, but not exactly not a blog either), and since it is all
original, potentially interesting articles, with a lot of photos, I
started thinking about how to present the site's metadata.  I wasn't
able to come up with much, but each article has an RDF version with some
basic information (only the obvious things, see [1] for example).

My question to the list is:  What is the best way to include, format, or
present the metadata?  I've been planning to implement Rdf In Html[2],
but haven't yet had the time.
