It's not possible to use RDFa in valid HTML and adding all the element 
changes and new attributes necessary for RDFa to HTML is not part of the 
current proposals for HTML5. If you want to to use RDF in an HTML 
context, look to eRDF:


Note that some of the examples there misuse the TITLE attribute as badly 
as some of the microformat patterns we've seen.
