Abstract: |Document Web| (XML-based) and |Semantic Web| (RDF-based) methods are often surprisingly hard to integrate. In this paper, we analyse the role of (RDF) semantics in selecting, structuring and styling (XML) content. We use our analysis to derive a more integrated alternative, based on an XSLT extension that allows direct semantic queries from within an XSLT transformation.

Keywords: Cuypers; document transformations; RDF query languages; semantic web; Topia; XML; semantic queries; interoperability; content selection; content structuring; content styling; RDF semantics.
