[rdfweb-dev] Embedded html in FOAF

I just had a Mark Pilgrim moment. ;-)

I was thinking about putting profile page information into <bio:olb> 
This is cheating a bit because it's not really a One Line Biography. 
perhaps there should be a <bio:mlb> for multi-line biography.

Typically people put a subset of html into these profiles so I'd want to 
embed the html in the tag. The obvious thing to do is to escape special 
characters (< & etc). But then we run into the whole RSS-Atom-Escaped 
html nightmare. Should it actually be CDATA? Shortly after that I 
started worrying about character sets before recoiling, muttering "the 
horror, the horror".
