I have had a look at the foaf rdf you output here :
And it is a bit odd, but a start I guess :)
I am not sure your subject URIs such as :
<http://nnnnnk.myopenid.com/> is not really a foaf:Person it is ?
It looks like a OpenID URL to me.
I would consider modelling your RDF differently,
for example instead of :
<http://nnnnnk.myopenid.com/> rdf:type foaf:Person .
(The openid URL is a foaf:Person) which I don't think is true ...)
I would do change it to something like :
_:bnode rdf:type foaf:Person .
_:bnode foaf:openid <http://nnnnnk.myopenid.com/> .
(There is a foaf:Person, who has a uniquely identifying property, an OpenID, which is <http://nnnnnk.myopenid.com/> )
Does that make sense ?
Good work, and yeah, would be happy to help you get your data into a nice state if you like.
