RDF/XML is a syntax,[1] defined by the W3C,[2] to express (i.e. serialize) an RDF graph as an XML document. RDF/XML is sometimes misleadingly called simply RDF because it was introduced among the other W3C specifications defining RDF and it was historically the first W3C standard RDF serialization format.
