Abstract

This document describes a media type (application/rdf+xml) for use with the Extensible Markup Language (XML) serialization of the Resource Description Framework (RDF). RDF is a language designed to support the Semantic Web, by facilitating resource description and data exchange on the Web. RDF provides common structures that can be used for interoperable data exchange and follows the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) design principles of interoperability, evolution, and decentralization.

1. Introduction

   RDF is a language designed to support the Semantic Web, by

   facilitating resource description and data exchange on the Web.  RDF

   provides common structures that can be used for interoperable data

   exchange and follows the W3C design principles of interoperability,

   evolution, and decentralization.

   While the RDF data model [2] can be serialized in many ways, the W3C

   has defined the RDF/XML syntax [1] to allow RDF to be serialized in

   an XML format.  The application/rdf+xml media type allows RDF

   consumers to identify RDF/XML documents so that they can be processe...
