I read the part of the Cocoon discussion that was linked to the other day. I
followed up trying to figure out what RDF is and stumbled onto some articles
by Tim Berners-Lee and then onto SemanticWeb.org
(http://www.semanticweb.org). From their resources page I jumped to Philippe
Martin's WebKB. The Semantic Web resources page said WebKB links knowledge
to "Document Elements" (DEs). This sounded like more granularity (a good
thing) so I looked into it.
WebKB is a set of tools.
It includes a tool to "connect DEs by conceptual relations". There is a
"conceptual graph textual editor" and a "conceptual graph graphic editor".
There is a hierarchy browser for browsing "Isa" hierarchies (sounds like the
"is a" that becomes class inheritance in OO design). The site also has
Martin's top-level ontology which includes 200 concepts and 200 relations.
