      Description

      With the release of RDF 1.1 spec and Jena 3 software, the relationship between xsd:datatype and lang has changed.

      Previously a literal could have one or the other, but not both.  Presence of a lang tag presumed a datatype of string.  

      In 1.1, langString can explicitly indicate that a literal value contains text that is to be rendered using a language.  A language tag can be added to a langString declaration to indicate the language of the langString.

      string can be used as before, but could be reserved for string that are not text – such as identifiers.

      VIVO should develop documentation regarding best practices for the use of xsd:string, xsd:langString and lang tags.
