Dear all,

  there is a new version of the XML->RDF extraction framework Krextor (0.3)
http://kwarc.info/projects/krextor/.  Now, some less obscure input and output
formats are supported, most notably RDFa as input, and the somewhat
human-readable Turtle (similar to N3) as output.  RDFa is for semantic
annotation of XHTML, but Krextor also makes it easy to integrate RDFa into
other host languages.

Other news:
 * shorthand syntax for defining simple XML->RDF extraction rules
 * shell script frontend
 * convenient and efficient Java integration (using XOM and Saxon)

Krextor is an extensible XSLT-based framework for extracting RDF from XML,
supporting multiple input languages as well as multiple output RDF notations.
Krextor provides convenience templates that try to do bthe right thingbb"
many common cases, as to reduce the need for manually writing repetitive

If you want to give it a try for your XML language or microformat, I'd be
happy to support you in doing so.
