The majority of web assets cannot be understood by machines, because of the lack of available explicit and machine readable semantics. By enabling machines to understand the meaning of web media, fully automated discovery, processing, and linking become feasible. Semantic Web technologies o er the possibility to enhance web resources with explicit semantics via linking to ontologies encoded in RDF. We demand to make the content of every web asset explicit for machines with the least possible e

We demonstrate the feasibility of our approach with a prototype implementation.
