Description Bj 2004-06-04 13:12:54 UTC
Depending on whether the input URI is or one gets different graphs in the Notation3 output, namely

  earl:testSubject <>


  earl:testSubject <>

which is rather undesirable. URI->canonicalize(...) would prevent that.
Comment 1 Terje Bless 2004-09-01 10:32:19 UTC
Uhm. AFAIK, the two URLs are entirely equivalent. Why would this be a problem
(in n3 or otherwise)? Canonic URLs is probably a good idea on general principle,
but you seem to be implying a specific bug here?
Comment 2 Bj 2004-09-06 21:22:29 UTC
They are not equivalent when compared as strings which is how things work in 
RDF, as I wrote, you have two different graphs which is undesirable. This does 
not violate some protocol, but should be fixed nonetheless.

Fixed in HEAD.
