RDFa 1.1 Errata


This document records errata and corrections suggested by the community in the RDFa specifications as published on the 7 June 2012:

  1. Errata for RDF Core 1.1
  2. Errata for RDF Lite 1.1
  3. Errata for XHTML+RDFa 1.1
  4. Errata for HTML+RDFa 1.1
  5. Errata for RDFa 1.1 Primer

These corrections have no normative status as they have not been incorporated in the specification through the Recommendation Track process. Ivan Herman, Semantic Web Activity lead, is the editor of this document. If you find something in one of the documents listed above that you believe may be an error and wish to have it recorded here, please post your discovery to the public-rdfa mailing list, cc-ing to the editor of this document, Ivan Herman. The community has the possibility to react on the post and, typically after 5-6 business days and unless the community strongly objects for the discovery to be recorded as an official erratum, the entry is added to this list by the editor.

The errata are separated into three sections, corresponding to the three parts of the specification.

Three kinds of changes are highlighted: new, added text and deleted text.

Errata for RDFa Core 1.1

22 August 2013 Recommendation:
Latest version:

Editorial comment from Liam Morland

The first line of Example 123 is this:

           <p prefix="bibo: http://purl.org/ontology/bibo/ dc: http://purl.org/dc/terms/ typeof="bibo:Chapter">

@prefix is missing the close quote, which would appear before " typeof". This typo is also present in Examples 124, 126, and 127.

Errata for RDFa 1.1 Primer

7 June 2012 Note:
Latest version:

Editorial comments from Karen Coyle "By using a URL to identify a particular type of title, for example http://purl.org/dc/terms/title, both humans and machines can understand that the URL unambiguously refers to the "Date of creation of the resource", such as a web page." [mixes title and created; created is probably the better choice.]

Fig 6 caption "We've used a short-hands to label the arrows"[must be "a short-hand" or "short-hand labels for the arrows"]

below Fig 10 "If the FOAF data was included into each blog item" -> "If the FOAF data were included in each blog item" were: subjunctive. somewhat pedantic but grammatically correct. in: in American English, it's "included in" - sometimes British English uses different prepositions, and I don't know in this case if they do

Under Fig 11 "Using this approach, it becomes very easy to also add references to the same data from different blogs:" I believe you mean "blog posts" - yes? And I also assume that the resource = #me must be within the same - maybe I missed that, but it would be good to state that all of this is happening between those tags.

After example 40 "Indeed, let us suppose that Alice would like to set up a separate index page for all her blogs, and the only information she would like to put there, as structured data, is references to the titles." Again, I think this means "blog posts."

Editorial comments from Bernard Vatant

In example 32, the declaration should say <div class="sidebar" prefix="foaf: http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/ schema: http://schema.org/" (foaf: is missing).
