Description Eric Murphy 2001-07-12 15:33:24 PDT
In your docs, this should be changed because the W3C docs changed rdf:instanceOf
to be rdf:type (bottom)
4-September-1998: instanceOf -> type


Also, I would note that containers are essentialy a subtype of resources, and
replace "A" with something descriptive yet generic. Maybe 

( instance of )
( a Container )

because it's a rdfs:Container? I dunno, I understand RDF better after reading
the schema, so maybe it would be good to hint at what is there.

In my opinion, the W3C RDF docs don't do it right either, as they just have a
blank circle.

Oh, and you may want to consider representing B, C , D with ... because it makes
more sense as used in the templates as well.

Sure. I'll have to find the tool that I used to draw those picture, I guess.
