My understanding is that what i'm looking for is a way that a user, or 
myself could search the rdf data in svg images on the peepo website, 
and find those of interest.

for instance say,

chelsea, football,   or

keyboard, music, madonna

or more simply:




this would then 'theoretically' provide a web of svg images on the 
peepo website that conformed to this choice.

We really need to start labelling links as people are having real 
problems finding appropriate resources; not surprised :-)


as a starting point, we have had bulk requests for a switch accessible 
site, and I just don't have time to maintain, another site.
however we do know which sites are switch accessible, so even with 
javascript, we could exclude others via a button.
However RDF would seem a better solution, if I can find out how to 
start implementing it sensibly...
it would be great if users could have a little more control, and it was 
a little less hard coded.

I'm naturally assuming that we will be involved in developing a 
vocabulary, but who knows....

thanks as ever
