Hallo Martin,

I am now browsing Sindice, and I just found this:
<rdfs:comment rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#string">Art
and Streetwear</rdfs:comment>

"Art and Streetwear" is not very understandable for machines, and
that's one of the most important criterion people will search for.
Semantic can bring a lot here.

So how about letting store owner choose terms from DBpedia ? In the
same way http://faviki.com allows users to tag pages with terms coming
from DBpedia. Maybe a selection of Wikipedia categories could cover
enough to represent all businesses.

Same goes for:
Using <http://www4.wiwiss.fu-berlin.de/factbook/resource/Germany>
would make it more semantic and more mashupable.

Is there any reason to have strings instead ?
