 				<p class="issue">Examples should not refer to TriX vocabularies.<p>
-				<p class="issue">This draft does NOT support N3 style graph literals.
-				That is, no <code>=</code> and no trailing <code>.</code></p>
 				
-				<p>A graph statement pairs an IRI with a RDF Graph. It is intended that triple statements made using that IRI are being made about the graph. The triple statements that make up the graph are enclosed in <code>{}</code>.</p>
-
-				<p>In a TriG document a graph IRI MUST NOT be used to label more then one graph. The IRI of a graph statement may be omitted. In this case the graph is considered the default graph of the RDF Dataset.</p>
-
-				<p>A RDF Dataset may contain named graphs that refer to other named graphs to provide providence. In this case <code>:G3</code> provides providence for 
-				<code>:G1</code> and <code>:G2</code>.</p>
