+    <p><a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/turtle/">Turtle</a> provides a convenient syntax for RDF graphs, introducing numerous
+    syntax shortcuts when compared with N-Triples, such as the support for namespaces, lists and shorthands for data-typed
+    literals. Turtle provides a good trade-off between ease of writing, ease of parsing and readability.</p>
