We cannot wait until the full Semantic Web vision materializes — it may take another ten years for it to be realized to its full extent (as envisioned 18 1 The Semantic Web Vision today, of course). In building one layer of the Semantic Web on top of another, two principles should be followed: • Downward compatibility. Agents fully aware of a layer should also be able to interpret and use information written at lower levels. For example, agents aware of the semantics of OWL can take full advantage of information written in RDF and RDF Schema.

Attributes Consider the element from the previous section.
