Hello Graham,

Sorry, but I somewhat don't get "a non-hyperlink type of context
where other URIs can and do appear". Can you give examples?

One example I have come up would be an XML namespace URI.
In that case, the namespace would just be identified literally
(i.e. by character-for-character comparison with other URIs
to check whether they are the same namespace or not). Same
for URIs/IRIs used in an RDF context.

Did you have this in mind (which in my eyes looks a bit too trivial
for asking the question above) or something else?

Regards,     Martin.
