The Construction of a Metadata Authoring System using RDFa

Search this article
In October 2008, RDFa was approved by the W3C as a Recommendation. RDFa allows to embed RDF metadata in XHTMLs documents, bringing the traditional Web and the Semantic Web closer together. We have created an authoring system for RDFa that works in a Web browser. Using this system, it is possible to select part of a Web page and add semantic data without editing the Web page source code directly. In addition, the embedded metadata is displayed in a outline view. This facilitates understanding of the data and allows direct editing. To help users not familiar with RDFa, we automatically translate RDF URIs for frequently used terms to plain Japanese (or English). With this work, we hope to contribute to the popularization of RDFa.
