Section 2.5.2 has an example of a number:

     :censusYear 2007 ;              # xsd:integer

... that is probably ill-advised. While years are represented by numbers, this might not be a good example of an "integer". There is, after all, a Schema type for year (gYear) that does not remove the 'date-ness' of the value.


    :gdpDollars 14074.2E9 ;         # xsd:double

Currency types are generally complex values (you need a currency identifier such as an ISO 4217 currency code). While the name of the field is illustrative and this is "merely an example", it's usually better to use examples that aren't "poorly internationalized".
