Apologies for the delay - I caught flu which turned into a chest infection that ledt me unable to sit up for a week after tearing a musclefrom coughing.
I have had a quick look at the article and have some basic concerns that need to be addressed rather than do a review and then re-review.
First of all there are several prioblems with the format which I will deal with immediately
  • Refs in the wrong place [1]. instead of .[1] for example
  • Lead includes part of the body which I will move but will mean a rewrite of the lead
  • I will give it a quick copyedit scan
The next problem is refs and terminology. For example the opening paras mention "Pednault" but with no explanation of what or who that is - I would at least expect to see "a specialist in the field of Data abstraction and modelling who has been an "IBM Research Staff Member in the Data Abstraction Research Group since 1996".[1]
There are almost one ref per paragraph, the expected minimum for good copy, but in such a technical article I would expect to see more refs. Especially noted are the complete lack of refs in two sections:-
  • "Syntax of ADL" = 0
  • "Semantics of ADL" = 0
  • "Comparison between STRIPS and ADL" = 2
I have started the copy edit and will be finished in 20 mins or so. Once completed I suggest refs should be put in and then I will formally review it :¬)

OK - all done for now - copy edit took a little longer than I thought it would ...
Just need you to look over the article and if you can find some more refs that would be great :¬) Chaosdruid (talk) 17:55, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
if you want to use a ref you have already created you need to make sure the ref has a name
<ref name="REFNAME">details of ref</ref>
now everytime you want to reuse it simply put
<ref name="REFNAME"/>
