Subject: RE: DOCBOOK: Re: Markup of Thesaurus [maybe off-topic]

Here are a some examples of online thesauri/vocabulary control systems:




I'd recommend that Mr. Jenkins look at some of activity in the RDF community
which can be found off of the W3C.org web site. There are also some
interesting things happening regarding ontologies with DAML and OIL. These
are geared towards electronic content. But there might be something there.

None of those standards rings a bell. Can you point us to some
examples of this sort of thesaurus?
