The W3C RDF Schema Proposed Recommendation is published.


This document is a revision of the public working draft dated 1998-08-14 incorporating suggestions received in review comments and further deliberations of the W3C RDF Schema Working Group. Significant changes from the previous draft are highlighted in Appendix E. With the publication of this draft, the RDF Schema specification enters "last call". The last call period will end on November 30, 1998.

Comments on this specification may be sent to www-rdf-comments@w3.org. The public archive of these comments is available at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/.

While we do not anticipate substantial changes, we still caution that further changes are possible. Therefore while we encourage active implementation to test this specification we also recommend that only software that can be easily field-upgraded be implemented to this specification at this time. The RDF Schema Working Group will not allow early implementation to constrain their ability to make changes to this specification prior to final release.

This is a W3C Working Draft for review by W3C members and other interested parties. Publication as a "last call" working draft does not imply endorsement by the W3C membership.

The Resource Description Framework is part of the W3C Metadata Activity. The goal of this activity, and of RDF specifically, is to produce a language for the exchange of machine-understandable descriptions of resources on the Web. A separate specification describes the data model and syntax for the interchange of metadata using RDF.

This is a draft document and may be updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to use W3C Working Drafts as reference material or to cite them as other than "work in progress".

Note: As working drafts are subject to frequent change, you are advised to reference the above URL for "Newest version" rather than the URLs for working draft versions themselves. The newest version URL will always point to the most current version of this draft.

Note: The HTML source of this document contains embedded RDF and will therefore not validate against the HTML4.0 DTD. A solution for those requiring DTD-style validation services may come from future W3C work.
