Dear Irene,

Thank you for your comment
     <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdfa-wg/2010May/0034.html>
on the RDFa 1.1 drafts.

1. You write:

 >In section 3.10 and at the beginning of section 5, @src is only
> indicated as a way to indicate a URI object, but later in the document
>(paragraph 8.1.1.3) the examples use @src as a way to indicate a
>subject. Maybe it would be useful to clarify @src possible uses.

This is indeed a good point, and we will take care of this in the next release.

2. You write:

>In section 2.2, in the example regarding the definition of an RDFa
>profile, the example snippet contains
>   <span property="rdfa:uri">http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#</span>
>Is this correct? Shouldn't it be like the following:
>    <span rel="rdfa:uri"
>resource="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" />

That is intentional. An RDF Triple referring to a resource makes a statement _on that resource_ ie, in this case, it would be on RDF as an abstract notion. However, in a profile document, we make statements only on the URI as a string, and a possible abbreviation thereof. From a modeling point of view, it is better not to make the difference...

3. You write:

> A final comment about the "appearance" of examples in the document. I
> believe that example numbering would improve readability of the 
> document (and it would ease making references as well...). Moreover,
> whenever a "wrong" example is given (like the first example in section
> 8.3.1.3), it would be nice to use a different visual indication (like
> a different font color for example) to make clear that it is something
> people should not replicate.

This is indeed a good idea, and we will take care of this in the next release.
