Discobits is an ontology to describe the course grained structure of
documents and similar entities. The idea is to describe something
similar to multipart-mime messages in RDF.

It is typically used in combination with XMLLiterals, where the course
grained structure is described in RDF using the discobits ontology while
the individual bits of contents use XHTML.

see: http://discobits.org/

To see the page you need a browser capable of XSLT; the page is an
RDF/XML document with a stylesheet to display the contained discobits.

The discobits editor allows creating structured content described using
the discobits ontology. It is an ajax application that runs in firefox
and uses mozile to allow wysiwyg editing and tabulator libraries to
parse the RDF retrieved from the server.

see: http://discobits.org/editor/

I'm looking forward to any comment.
