I'd propose some best practice principles then 1. semantic queries regarding XML should ideally be written in a semantic query language 2. semantic queries using XPath should be considered second best 3. semantic conformance rules / criteria should be tested using semantic assertions (just as we can test structural criteria using XPath assertions such as Schematron, XSD 1.1, test assertion markup with XPathsm and other associations between rules and XPaths, etc) 4. semantics can be defined for a markup using semantic / ontology languages 5. semantic expressions can be evaluated over the markup using semantic queries but for this, maybe further work is needed to establish how to associate XPaths with the semantic definitions Best regards Stephen D Green > Apologies for harping back on the > former thread. > > Given then that I need to define the > semantics of a markup outside of that > markup and outside of a schema, > perhaps using RDF or the like, I'd probably > want to associate many classes and properties > or expressions with XPaths in my markup. > If I used RDF, it seems to like URIs or URLs > or the like (there seem to be many such > identifier standards of late).
