Deprecated This feature has been removed from the Web. Though some browsers may still support it, it is in the process of being dropped. Do not use it in old or new projects. Pages or Web apps using it may break at any time.
This element should appear directly inside a rule element and is used to define conditions for the rule. Within the conditions can be placed content, member and triple elements. These may have attributes whose value is a variable name beginning with a question mark (?). When evaluating the rule for a particular RDF resource, the variables are replaced with values from the resource. If all variables can be replaced, the rule matched.
This element is used with Firefox 2/Mozilla 1.8 and earlier instead of the query element.

Why does MDN look different?
MDN is changing to focus just on documenting web technologies. All the same great content is still here; we’re just changing some visual elements and navigation, to help you more quickly find the web technology docs you’re looking for.
But don’t worry, MDN and Mozilla are still together! In fact, we're updating MDN’s look to reflect Mozilla's new logo and colors.
