At the end of Chap. 7, we have discussed the topic about semantic markup. More specifically, it is possible to automatically generate markup documents for some Web content especially when there is pre-existing structured information contained in these content.

This chapter will provide one such example, and this is the popular DBpedia project. In fact, it is important to understand DBpedia, not only as an example of automatically generating structured data from Web content, but also because of its key position in the Web of Linked Data, as we will see in Chap. 11.
