Subject [GitHub] commons-rdf issue #30: COMMONSRDF-51 language tags compared lower case
Date Sat, 21 Jan 2017 21:39:52 GMT
Github user afs commented on the issue:
    RDF 1.1 mentions:
    1. Turtle parsing - there is a lang tag rule.
    2. The text that conversion to a lowercase lexical is allowed.
    3. Value-comparison is case insensitive.
    Which is that test for? Lexical or value?
    At least acknowledging that RDF's "lowercase" is not in keeping with BCP 47 syntax canonicalization
(the registry may change the characters) whatever the spec makes sense to me and I suspect
domain experts; it's following the spec that "owns" language tags. Focus on the value comparison.
