> OK, thanks. I'll start by generating the zoological
> Nomenclatural example, using real ZooBank records. Following
> your lead on the Species Checklist example, I'll create one
> normalized version, and one demoralized. If no one else on
> this list can generate a real example for the botanical
> and/or bacteriological Code, then I'll see if I can make one.
> I just can't give it resolvable GUIDs (yet). By early 2011,
> we should have a functional instance of GNUB, at which time
> I'll swap out the examples to that.
> As the subject line indicates, I also have a question:
> At the moment, the ZooBank HTTP proxy only resolves to
> human-readable HTML:
> However, later today I want to modify the site to redirect
> appropriate requests to RDF:
> My understanding is that several people have opted for a
> solution that uses HTTP_USER_AGENT to determine whether the
> client is a browser vs. some other app, and if a browser then
> return HTML, and if another app then return RDF.
> My question is: is this an acceptable (interim) solution? Or
> is there a better way to deal with this? Yes, I know what we
> should probably do is return XML with a stylesheet, but that
> will take me more than this afternoon to implement.
> Please forgive me if I've just revealed and/or emphasized how
> uneducated I am as a web developer....
