Amaya Also for RDFa

Irène Vatton has just announced the availability of the latest Amaya version, namely Amaya 11. (For those who may not know what Amaya is, it is an open source (X)HTML browser and editor in one.) The interesting point in this release for Semantic Web users is that Amaya “understands” RDFa. What this means is that, when using the RDFa DTD (which is one of the DTD-s that Amaya offers for any new document), Amaya knows about all the RDFa attributes (i.e., @about, @resource, etc), i.e., one can use the usual user interface features of Amaya to add and edit them. Cool…

  1. I just wanna know, wich browser is default when we open website using Amaya ? Cause when I open one of website, the layout is doesn’t neat and some function is not working. thanx for the replay if any :-p

  2. Hi Ivan,

    I know this post goes back to 2008, but can you say more, or point to a resource that does, concerning how this actually works in Amaya? I cannot find any mention of RDFa in the documentation for Amaya.


  3. I tried loading what I think is a valid HTML5 + RDFa (1.1) document that I hand crafted, into Amaya 11.4.4 (the latest at this time) and it did not seem to recognize any of the attributes (e.g., @property on )

    Further, explicitly changing the doctype to XHTML+RDFa removed all of these attributes, and also all of my and elements.

    I guess that HTML5 + RDFa 1.1 is not supported yet by Amaya as a doctype.

    1. David,
      Indeed, HTML5 + RDFa is not supported by Amaya (as HTML5.)
      When RDFa support was developed in Amaya, RDFa was recognized for XHTML documents only (so with XHTML* in the doctype).
      After testing with the latest version of Amaya, we could load and save a simple XHTML+RDFa 1.0 document without loosing RDF attributes.
      If you’d like to know why your second test (using XHTML+RDFa doctype) failed, you can send the amaya mailing list a mail with a copy of your document.
