I'd also like to add a more detailed biography. My policy with Bio is to 
add things when the demand is there since it's almost impossible to undo 
bad things later. bio:olb was a tiny useful chunk of functionality. I 
strongly object to putting any kind of markup in there.

Rather than adding a bio:mlb property and having to face mixing xhtml 
into foaf I'd rather create a property that points to an HTML version of 
the bio.

The domain of the property would be foaf:Person and the range 
foaf:Document. Any suggestions for appropriate names? The description of 
what I have in mind is probably something like "A detailed human 
readable biography of this person."

I'm off on holiday for 1 week starting tonight so I won't be able to 
discuss this properly. But if there's any interest, I'll pick it up the 
week after.
