Cool URIs for the Semantic Web
The Resource Descriptipn Framework RDF allows you to describe web documents and resources from the real world – people, organisations, things – in a computer-processable way. Publishing such descriptions on the web creates the semantic web. URIs are very important as the link between RDF and the web. This article presents guidelines for their effective use. We discuss two strategies, called 303 URIs and hash URIs. We give pointers to several web sites that use these solutions, and briefly discuss why several other proposals have problems.

Note: This page was written to look best with CSS stylesheet support Level 1 or higher. Since you can see this, your browser obviously doesn't support CSS, or you have turned it off. We highly recommend you use a browser that supports and uses CSS, and review this page once you do. However, don't fear, we've tried to write this page to still work and be readable without CSS.
