The algoritm for this could use the Xpointer thing now developed by w3c:

That would make it possible to use not only strings in RDF documents,
also strings in ANY xml document, including the HTML/xml documents.

I have seen suggestions here to make it possible to pint inside other
types of documents, like the metadata contained in GIF and MP3 files.
But we could at least start with a standard way to access the strings in
a ordinary RDF/xml document.
