As the person who created the patches for Bryn Mawr (Perl and Tcl and
SGML--oh my!) back in 2014, their publication process generates static
HTML. Any new pages should include RDFa (schema.org), but the legacy pages
would have needed to be regenerated.
It was fun working with Karen Coyle and Camilla MacKay on figuring out what
schema.org we could deploy to enrich what was largely a set of static
strings... albeit in some instances nicely marked up with SGML elements.
I believe Bryn Mawr was hoping to move to a brand new modern publishing
platform that will incorporate much richer linked open data starting from
the authoring side, so perhaps they chose not to go back and regenerate the
older pages. There were some variations in the SGML and publishing process
over time that I tried to accommodate, but they might have decided it
wasn't worth the risk of republishing (or the time to revalidate all of the
output) in the interim.
