[uf-discuss] How about adding aRecipe, an RDFa serialization of hRecipe?

The former I don't know, but the latter is probably the most widely  
used RDF tagging vocab that there is - Richard Newman is very  
unlikely to make any incompatible changes to it.

Good luck finding another RDF recipe vocab with merit. Good luck  
finding another RDF recipe vocab at all!

The problem with this is that only tools that support OWL will  
realise that hRecipe:title is the item's title. This leaves the  
majority of simple RDF tools out in the cold.

If you want to make the properties you're using for recipes more  
obvious, you could always use:


	<h1 property="recipeDC:title">...</h1>
	... etc ...

Anyway, this is probably becoming off-topic for uf-discuss. Perhaps  
we should shift over to the SWIG mailing list?
