RE: comparing vocabularies -- examples

Al Gilman said,
    It is a recurring situation where multiple groups have 
    created controlled vocabularies in the same general 
    application area before people are convinced of the need 
    for interoperation between different kinds of tasks that 
    touch the same domain of information.

    The lexicon and thesaurus information system that Eric said 
    the Semantic Web is using as a pattern of practice in this 
    application domain is SKOS:
    These are three worked examples of practice, with the first 
    two of somewhat more historical and educational interest, 
    because the standing suggestion is to base on SKOS for 
    documenting formal-term usage as well as natural language 

dp. A related issue arose through a WAI IG thread; the basic
question was 'can anyone recommend a good accessible web site author',
which turned out to be more complex than I'd imagined.
The issues turned out to be bias (the organisation paid me to say this), 
which generalises as trust; and who says, which generalises as the number of
'recommendations', or knowing the person providing the recommendation, a
mixture of trust and bulk. Finally I was short of a vocabulary that 
included website design.

I believe the semantic web people are addressing trust, though
I haven't found the vocabulary.
Charles mentioned that some terms may be lifted from the current work
on Earl.

So thanks for the hints Al.
If others are interested in such statements as
Charles writes good websites.
Dave says Charles writes good websites is an accessible website was authored by Charles
etc, please let me know.
