I have been working on converting the Wikipedia tables into N-Triple custom format. by "custom" I mean I am concerned with the literals of the entries not the URI or ID or anything, so my Triple would be something like < USA > < Captial > < Washington D.C. >

My main concern here is the semantic of the subject, I mean, how am I going to convert the notion of a table into a triple format? tables can be formed in any way, and some table doesn't indicate clearly in their headers what they're describing ....etc

So far I've been able to download the wikipedia dump and extract the tables only in a separate file and I parsed the tables into HTML to be able to deal with it more easily than in the Wiki Markup format.

I want to know if there's some kind of convention for forming tables into triples or something similar.

Have you look at dbpedia (http://dbpedia.org/About)? Doesn't make sense to re-invent the wheel.
