This W3C Recommendation has been superseded by set of six documents (Primer, Concepts, Syntax, Semantics, Vocabulary, and Test Cases) jointly describing updates to the RDF syntax and a more detailed model.
An editorial update, Resource Description Framework (RDF) Schema Specification 1.0 W3C Candidate Recommendation 27 March 2000, has been published.
This document is a Proposed Recommendation of the World Wide Web Consortium. Review comments on this specification should be sent by 2359Z April 06, 1999 to <firstname.lastname@example.org>. The archive of public comments is available at http://w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments. W3C Members may send their formal comments, visible only to W3C staff, to <email@example.com>.
This specification is a revision of the last-call working draft dated 1998-10-30 incorporating suggestions received in review comments and further deliberations of the W3C RDF Schema Working Group. The detailed differences are available for reviewers to compare.
The Working Group anticipates no further substantial changes to this specification. We encourage active implementation to test this specification during the Proposed Recommendation review period.
Publication as a Proposed Recommendation does not imply endorsement by the W3C membership. This is a draft document and may be updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to cite W3C Drafts as other than "work in progress".
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.
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.
