WSMO is bettered compared with OWL-S -- and perhaps in conception, with SAWSDL. If you look at WSMO, it is not so much a language as an ontology(ies), and specifically addressing web services. Just as OWL-S is formalized/represented in OWL, WSMO is formalized/represented in WSML. So you are perhaps confusing content with the language the content is modeled in.

WSMO: http://www.wsmo.org/index.html.

WSML: http://www.wsmo.org/wsml/

OWL-S: http://www.w3.org/Submission/OWL-S/

Subject: wsmo

Has anyone had any chance to evaluate applications of wsmo as an alternative to owl?

I may have seen  wsmo in passing before, but its only when I was given the demo that I noticed
that its no .owl  but .wsmo file extension

could this be pointing to an alternative standard? any use there?
