Dear all,

I have recently prepared a representation of the CIDOC CRM using
the DAML+OIL ontology definition language. DAML+OIL is basically
an extension to RDF Schema (RDFS) that allows us to express some
more features of the CRM definition in a way that can be under-
stood by a number of ontology software tools. A description of
the changes relative to the existing RDFS representation is given
on the following page:

Please note that the DAML file is not quite up to date with ver-
sion 3.4 of the CIDOC CRM. I am planning to supply a synchronized 
version within a few weeks, i.e. some time in June. Questions of
further maintenance etc. are open for discussion.

Best wishes,
Detlev
