Hello all (thanks Jim for guiding me to the right list),
Japanese intro to FOAF (http://kanzaki.com/docs/sw/foaf.html) got some
attentions here, and several foaf documents would come from Japanese sites
soon, I expect.

This is great. I hope the new version will be public soon :-)
I wonder how to include both English and Japanese names in <foaf:name>
element, so that Japanese native readers as well as foreigners be
comfortable. I first tried something like:
* '神崎正英' is my name in Japanese characters. Sorry if you see some garbages.
Though it's a valid RDF, the range of foaf:name is defined as rdfs:Literal,
so this idea failed. But two foaf:name's
seems to denote two different names (like real name and pen name). Should I
put both in one element?
<foaf:name xml:lang="ja">神崎正英 (Masahide Kanzaki)</foaf:name>
Could anyone suggest a good approach ?
