Niklas,

I was bitten by this issue when testing content negotiation outcomes. The issue is that your browser is not an innocent bystander in this HTTP transaction: it will have provided a requested set of response formats (and not just 'text/html') which will have an impact on what is returned.  And different browsers have different default settings (which you as their user can alter).

Hi,

visiting via a browser (text/html) the URIs of RDF, RDFS and OWL returns the turtle serialization of them. Would it not be better to provide a more human-friendly version (.html)?

    -> ? (probably to RDFS :/)
