One option might be to use standard XSLT and XPath over a regular XML
syntax for RDF such as RXR or TriX, which unlike RDF/XML can be
processed using XSLT.  (Although it is a bit clumsy, and the
performance probably isn't great.)

I made a script to convert RDF/XML to TriX, and then apply an XSLT
stylesheet to the result to get HTML-ised RDF Schemas here:
