Well, shame on me at least for not realizing that the primer
didn't address rdf:parseType="Literal". For some reason I
recalled that it did (maybe at some time it did).

Yes, Frank, I think that Martin's input clearly reflects the
need for XML folks to understand the difference between view X
and view G, as Pat puts it, and how the RDF/XML serialization
is an encapsulation of any XML literals and that the
rdf:parseType="Literal" attribute indicates the boundary between
the encapsulation and the encapsulated.

I think that Pat had some very good material in his recent post
that would fit well into the primer. I'll be thinking myself
on how this might be best expressed.
