I don't know what PTSW can accept, but while the RDF looks ok, there
do appear to be problems with the way the data is being served.

If you copy & paste the content into the W3C validator,


(remembering to check "RDF is NOT enclosed in <RDF>...</RDF> tags")

it's reported as valid.

However, trying it directly from the URI,




RDF Load Error
An attempt to load the RDF from URI
'http://thomas.apestaart.org/moap/moap.doap' failed. (Undecodable data
when reading URI at byte 0 using encoding 'UTF-8'. Please check
encoding and encoding declaration of your document.)

Maybe the file wasn't saved as utf-8?

Also for a client to determine the file is RDF/XML, it should be
served with media type "application/rdf+xml" - right now it's
text/plain -
