Mostly looks good, but I'd suggest that you seem to have some of the  
relationships backwards. For example, Tantek has the following on his  

	<a href='http://juliemelton.com' rel='muse'>Julie Melton</a>

which you convert to:

	  <Person rdf:ID="hcard">
	    <name>Tantek Çelik</name>
	      <Person rdf:about="http://juliemelton.com">
	        <name>Julie Melton</name>
	        <weblog rdf:resource="http://juliemelton.com"/>

(I've simplified both down a bit.)

I would suggest that the FOAF should be the other way around: Tantek  
apprenticeTo Julie; not Tantek mentorOf Julie. (Yes, the terms  
"mentor" and "apprentice" seem a bit odd, but they're about the  
closest terms that the FOAF relationships extension has to "muse".)

Also, you needlessly output multiple foaf:knows for each person.
