Thanks Masahide, now the editor accepts literal values for the properties of the rdfs:Literal type . This is the code produced:

<foaf:Person rdf:ID="MickeyMouse">
    <foaf:firstName rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#string">Mickey</foaf:firstName>

> Hi Luigi,
> I guess you are using default Individual Editor for foaf:Person class.
> Although foaf:first_name is defined as owl:DatatypeProperty, Protege
> prepares a 'resource' input widget for this property because of its
> rdfs:Literal range restriction (could be a bug, or could be a
> feature).
> You can change the input widget for any property. Try this way:
> 1) Select 'Forms' tab
> 2) Select foaf:Person class from 'Form Browser' pane on the left
> 3) Click the 'View Form Customization' icon, which is the leftmost one
> of four small icons residing just above the 'Forms' area
> 4) Change the widget type to 'SingleLiteralWidget' for all datatype properties
> then you'll find input fields for those datatype properties accept
> literal value.
> Hope this will help.
> cheers,
