Total Validator reported the following error:

98 next problemprevious problemE622 The 'xml:lang' attribute does not have a valid value: Unrecognised, or malformed language code (see
                                     <span class="username" xml:lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="sioc:User" property="foaf:name">

  98                                 </span>

In addition, I do not see the validity in exposing account names. From my perspective, this is treading on a security issue by exposing account information. I realize that the real name is not available in the user profile.

The W3C validator reports no error. I've sent an email to discuss this in the RDFa mailing list.

Regarding the username, I don't really understand your point. Drupal displays the username, we just wrap it with a span to annotate it with the right RDFa markup saying what the name of the author is. Can you clarify please?

I just miss the Real Name module from Drupal 6. While this is not an RDF issue, I just wonder about the validity of having the account name as the author. If I have different account names on different systems there is no symantic connection, even though I am the same author. As it is, Bing and Yahoo show me as having a relationship to "Whispering Bill." I even get his fan mail.
