RE: XSD ontology

Hi Henry!

I can see that all you do is creating declarations of the form "xsd:DDD
rdf:type rdfs:Datatype" plus rdfs:commentS. Did you consider also taking the
relationships between the different XSD datatypes into account, in terms of
rdfs:subClassOf axioms?


(This is XSD 1.0. I can see from your ontology that you refer to this older
version and not to XSD 1.1, which has not yet been published as a W3C
