Here are some other non-RDF technologies that are definitely part of the
Semantic Web: HTML, HTTP, XML, WSDL, PHP, Java Script, Flash, .... I'd say
all these technologies do not fully conform to the RDF semantics, right?

The Semantic Web was, from the beginning, intended to be just another
evolutionary step of the existing World Wide Web. With other words, the
Semantic Web *IS* the World Wide Web, well perhaps in a few years from now.
If everything works well, then my son, now about two years old, will, when
he is older, not even know about today's distinction between the SemWeb and
the WWW.
