who provides the icons?

the question of who (or what) should proivide the iconic representation for nodes is playing on my mind. I’m thinking there needs to be a local cache – which can be initially populated with some defaults – but that it should be a dynamic thing basd on resource type, and using an RDF lookup .

rdf namespace oddness workaround

One of the thgings I’ve added today is a little code to guess where the schema may be – in order to validate or interpret conent the schema needs to be accessible, so the code now checks for index.rdf and schema.rdf files if the supplied namespace is one that does not end in a “#” […]

The beginnings of integration.

The List and Explorer views are now working insofar as they can be created and display some content. Double clicking on an entry in the Resource List makes that entry the head node in the Explorer – this mechanism, when combined with filters in the Resource List makes it easy to find the node you […]
