A new public version of the W3C RDF Schema draft specification is now available.


RDF Schemas are used to declare vocabularies, the sets of semantics defined by a particular resource description community. RDF Schemas may be used to define the kinds of resources communities want to describe (web pages, people, companies), and characteristics they wish to associate with these resources (e.g., Author, Title, Subject, etc.).

RDF Schemas are designed to complement the RDF Model and Syntax The goal of the W3C RDF activity is to produce a language for the exchange of machine-understandable descriptions of resources on the Web. More information on RDF is available at
