Abstract diate between user needs and available information sources. Early steps in the direction of a semantic Web were SHOE 1 and later Ontobroker, 2 but now many more projects exist. Originally, the Web grew mainly around HTML, which provided a standard for structuring documents so that browsers could translate them in a canonical way. On the one hand, it was HTML's simplicity that enabled the Web's fast growth, but on the other, its simplicity seriously hampered more advanced Web applications in many domains and for many tasks. This was the reason for XML (see Figure 1), which lets us define arbitrary domain- and task-specific extensions. Even HTML has been redefined as an XML application---XHTML. Consequently, we define the semantic Web as an XML application. The Resource Description Framework took the first step toward defining the Web in XML terms. RDF defines a syntactical convention and a simple data model for representing data's machine-processable se
