Forwarding (below) an update from DanC on the GRDDL work.
This is some welcome progress on the RDF-in-XHTML front. The
GRDDL spec explains how to cite an XSLT from an XHTML Web page to
transform the markup into RDF/XML. There are
examples, a spec and other notes at
an example home page for (the fictional) Joe Lambda, which
uses DC, GeoURL, RSS and FOAF, and applies 4 corresponding
transformations to get the RDF out. The grogFOAF.xsl
transform is probably of most interest here. See
which currently notes "This is purely experimental, and
has not been reviewed (and even less endorsed) by anybody
involved in the FOAF project". The example worked nicely
with FOAF Explorer and TypePad last I checked. I think
this (or something like it) is worth citing from the FOAF spec.
Feedback re grokFOAF.xsl could go to public-rdf-in-xhtml-tf at w3.org
but would be equally appropriate here.

"smart-home.rdf: generating webwho from XHTML with XSLT",
by Dan Connolly to this list back in July 7th 2000. Very nice to
see that work moving on :)
This also relates to XFN. DanC initiated some discussion on XFN, GRDDL,
FOAF etc., see

Dom and I just did the bulk of the work necessary to move GRDDL
to a friendlier address:
That document is now a somewhat friendly how-to, as well
as a technical explanation of how the profile works.
I'm sure various details remain to be fixed, but I'm not
sure how many of them I'll be able to fix today, and I
want to be sure I don't forget this notice.
I kept a running TODO list as we were doing the move;
it's messy, but I don't want to lose it, so...
