Thanks, Nate, but I'm still not sure about "URL". The definition of 
range is:

"rdfs:range is an instance of rdf:Property that is used to state that 
the values of a property are instances of one or more classes."

So the range must refer to a class. "Literal" is an RDF class, but I 
can't find where "URL" is defined as a class. It's the URL in there that 
I find confusing, especially because it is always combined with names of 
classes. Is it a class, or is it defining the datatype of the classes 
listed? (Note that there are cells with "URL ; URL" which add to my 

If it is a class, does it mean that each of the properties can take any 
value that is in the form of a URL in addition to the classes listed?

Or is it saying, as I posited below, that the classes mentioned must be 
represented as URL/URIs?
