The specgen only supports rdf/xml, so I'm using the cert.rdf file for
my tests. And on that file rdfs:comment and skos:editorialNote are
using different approaches about escape chars.

Yes. because this way is causing many problems generating valid
markup: http://bit.ly/oWJ9SY

Yes, I just read why cert:hex is both a class and a property. I agree,
it's confusing.

Meanwhile I'll try to add support to datatypes on the tools.

Cheers,
