Extending IKScE Demo Module with RDFa

Dear All,

I was checking out the IKS Content Enhancement Demo for Drupal 7 [1]. This involves annotate.js [2] in conjunction with Wolfgang Ziegler's combination of Drupal, Apache Stanbol, and VIE.js [3].
I like what the code makes possible, but I would like the change the substitution that jQuery gives for each annotation.
Right now I see markup that does not serialize to RDF inside the "content:enconded" tags. I believe changing line 895
for newElement in [2] would allow me to add some RDFa content.

Wiki9999 would like to reduce the split between politics and the citizenry. The goal of Wiki9999.org is to create the technical foundation for "We are the 99.99%".

Drupal, The Semantic Web and Genealogy

Hello all,
I would like to develop a genealogy application in Drupal. I wanted to see what has already been done specifically as it relates to using the Semantic Web. I know there are some genealogy modules but I'm interested in this from a Semantic Web perspective. I know that Drupal 7 supports RDFa out of the box, as it were. However, for Genealogy there are two specific vocabularies (at least) that one would want to use for Genealogy, that being BIO for biographic information and it has a focus around events in one's life. It is defined here:

Validation: HTML5, RDFa & WAI-ARIA

I want to validate a site built with Drupal 7 (with RDFa enabled), using a Genesis's HTML5 sub-theme & with lots of WAI-ARIA added for accessibility.

Looks like with - http://validator.nu - we can do HTML5 & ARIA.

But really not sure how to also evaluate for the RDFa as well.

The W3C doesn't seem to like it either although it can to XHTML & RDFA apparently - http://validator.w3.org

Some guidance on validation would be appreciated. I have heard that someones is maintaining a custom schema for HTML5 & RDFA, but not sure how to use it.

Big News - Google officially announces support for Good Relations RDFa markup

This news came a few days ago... Google is officially supporting the Good Relations (e-commerce) ontology as a source for Rich Snippets.

This means that once we have a good mapping for it in Drupal Commerce, sites that use Drupal for commerce will be at a distinct advantage. Yahoo research showed that click through rates for rich snippety search results were 15% higher, and other research has shown up to 30% higher.
