    Automatic metadata generation may provide a solution to the problem of
    inconsistent, unreliable metadata describing resources on the Web. The
    Resource Description Framework (RDF [10]) provides a domain-neutral
    foundation on which extensible element sets can be defined and expressed in
    a standard notation. This paper describes how an automatic classifier, that
    classifies HTML documents according to Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC
    [8]), can be used to extract context sensitive metadata which is then
    represented using RDF. The process of automatic classification is described
    and an appropriate metadata element set is identified comprising those
    elements that can be extracted during classification. An RDF data model and
    an RDF schema are defined representing the element set and the classifier
    is configured to output the elements in RDF syntax according to the defined
    Keywords: RDF, metadata, classification
