3rd paragraph

The text recommends that the reader should "go to Appendix B of this book and find the country code of your nation." Here are the links: http://backend.userland.com/stories/storyReader$16 Or any country code allowed by RFC 1766, which in turn means any alpha-2 code allowed by ISO 3166 - those are at http://www.unicode.org/onlinedat/countries.html

image section header, 3rd paragraph in section, 6th paragraph in section (under 'url')

In the section on the image subelement the book refers to the rdf:resource attribute when it should be referring to the rdf:about attribute. The first error is in the large, bold type section header which reads: <image rdf:resource=""> (a Subelement of rdf:RDF) but should read <image rdf:about=""> (a Sublement of rdf:RDF) In the 3rd paragraph of the section the first sentence: This element takes the rdf:resource attribute. should read: This element takes the rdf:about attribute. In the 6th paragraph of the section under the 'url' subhead the sentence that starts: This also appears within the rdf:resource attribute should read: This also appears within the rdf:about attribute
