Well, I'm experimenting with XUL as frontend and Cocoon as backend. Mozilla 
XUL trees like RDF so I use Cocoon on the backend to generate it. When I want 
to generate the RDF/XML for a list of Partners, the RDF contains :

* as many <RDF:description ... > as there are rows (Partners) in the 
* then an <RDF:Seq> in order to predicate the fact that those entities are 
part of a list. Every item of the <RDF:Seq> is a _reference_ to the defined 

Now that you mentioned it I realize that it is possible to not use references 
but textually include the entities <RDF:description> in the <RDF:Seq>. In my 
case that would work and I will use it tomorrow :) But if one wants to 
describe in the same RDF/XML several different lists or graphs of the same 
entities, using references becomes unavoidable. So iterating through the 
ResultSet several times also becomes necessary, I think.

I am quite new to XSP/logicsheets but they seem so wonderfully simple; I'll 
take a look anyway to the esql logicsheet to see if I can make something of
