Can someone provide an explanation as to how RDF relates to XML, in terms
of what capabilities they bring to the world?

I've been reading about RDF, and the uses that have been forecast for it (
better search engine capabilities; cataloging by intelligent software
agents that describes the content and content relationships available at a
particular Web site; browsers better able to filter objectionable content
based on a web site's content ratings; grouping collections of web pages
into a single logical "document"; describing intellectual property rights
of Web pages; expressing the privacy preferences of a user as well as the
privacy policies of a Web site) sound an awful lot like the promise of
XML-in-general.

Is RDF an application of XML targeted at a certain set of issues?
