File extensions

Rinke Hoekstra-4
Dear all,

On many occasions I meet non-experts who are confused about the  
various syntaxes for OWL. Most commonly, they think OWL/XML is also  
RDF... and stumble upon problems when trying to read their ontology in  
RDF-only OWL tools/applications.

It would be good, I think, if P4 adhered to the file-extensions as  
prescribed by the mime-types defined for OWL 2 ontologies.

That is:

.ofn for Functional Style, http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-syntax/
.owx for OWL/XML, http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-xml-serialization/
.omn for Manchester Syntax, http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-manchester-syntax/
.rdf or .owl for OWL/RDF, http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-ref/

-Rinke

Hi Rinke,

I'll add it to the list.
I doubt that it will prevent confusion though :)
