The example did not work; it got scrunched somewhere, I am reposting it in html with utf-8 encoding which worked last time.

Here is the example again, I hope this works.

<!--  Issue: charmod-literal
        Test:  1
        Author: Jeremy Carroll, HP
        $Header: /w3ccvs/WWW/2000/10/rdf-tests/rdfcore/rdf-containers-syntax-vs-schema/test004.rdf,v 1.4 2001/09/06 21:23:35 barstow Exp $

        Example showing two different literals, that display the same.
        In a context where there is a unique naming convention, this can
        cause confusion, possibly moral and/or legal confusion.
        The use case consists of:
        - a site collecting Dublin Core data,
          using a unique names convention for individuals.
        - One of the editors of Charmod registers himself and his
        - Someone else, with the same name, creator of an adult internet
          site, registers a different but visually indistinguishable
          name; along with his work.
        - The consumers of both works get confused and disappointed,
          probably to the detriment of at least one of the Martins.
        - This file consists of some of the (ill-formed) RDF used by the 
          metadata site.

<rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
   <!-- An author database uses the property eg:name with a
        unique naming convention.
   <!-- Dürst registers himself as a creator of the Charmod WD. -->
   <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-charmod-20020220">
   <!-- The ü below is a single character #xFC in NFC -->
      <dc:Creator eg:named="Dürst"/>
   <!-- Someone else registers himself under the unused name of Dürst,
        along with some other creation as its creator. -->
   <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://example.org/adult-content.html">
   <!-- The ü below is two characters a u followed by 
          #x308. It should be displayed identically to  ü. -->
      <dc:Creator eg:named="Dürst"/>
   <!-- Readers of such data will be given no visual indication that
   these are two different people despite the unique naming convention. 
   This example minimally shows significant risk of confusion.
