What is the relationship between Linked Data and RDFa?

RDFa is one of several ways of writing down, or serialising, RDF data. Specifically, RDFa enables RDF data to be embedded in HTML documents, which makes it very useful for publishing RDF in contexts where Web publishing is limited to HTML, for example where a legacy content management system prevents publication in other formats. As simply another serialisation of RDF, RDFa is ideally suited to publishing Linked Data.
