Hi Pat,

+cc: rdfcore

re latest snapshot of Lbase

> http://www.coginst.uwf.edu/~phayes/*** (possibly private url trimmed)

copied as 6 Nov not-a-note to http://www.w3.org/2002/06/lbase/ which btw
is always findable via Google(!) search on 'lbase'. I linked in the prev
snapshot, so we have a trail back even through pre-publication
discussions. Future historians will thank us, or something.

I made one change (as discussed):

"This document is motivated by these two requirements." instead of the
stronger sounding "This document addresses"...

Also removed some duplication from the Abstract (typo-editing-stuff not
real wordsmithing).

I think there's still a little mismatch between the style/tone of the
Status section (which I wrote with a 'cautious/tentative' tone), and the
Abstract, which is more gung ho. I can live with it though.

OK, I'm ready to grab latest Lbase and check the markup, copy it into W3C
space etc. Did you do any more or shall I run with what we've got? Can we
also have the source files for any images, for completeness sake...?

For now I've grabbed a copy of what you currently have. The HTML isn't so
good. It isn't XML/XHTML either.  I suspect I should punt the job of HTML
fixups to you (or other RDFCore/RDFIG volunteers). In future I strongly
recommend running a copy of HTML Tidy locally, so you can keep it in XHTML
form while developing it. When I run HTML Tidy (v easy btw, just: tidy -m
-asxml Overview.html) it makes changes to your markup which may or may not
be mangling your intended presentation. And sometimes the markup is so
messed up anyway that HTML Tidy can't repair it.

I need to concentrate on RDFS right now, but let's keep Lbase moving along
too. Guha, perhaps you could fix up the markup? You used to work for a
browser company, right?.... shouldn't take you long...

BTW, if I didn't say already, Lbase is imho really nice work. Who'd have
thought logic was so useful? ;-)
