[protege-owl] Different individual with same name

So you have two different individuals with different full names whose 
display name is C.  This is probably usually not recommended because it 
will create exactly the problem that you are having.  When you say the 
individual C, which individual do you mean?  This means that the display 
name can't be used to determine which individual you are talking about.

If you modify the ontology slightly and make the full name for the one C 
individual start with

and the other start with

then you could use "Render entities using annotation values with 
prefixes" to distinguish the two versions of C.  Then the one dlquery 
would look like this:

    hasPart some { C }

and would contain the individual A and the other dlquery would look like 

    hasPart some { b:C }

and would contain the individual B.

There was a problem reported with this recently so using "render 
entities using annotation values with prefixes" may not quite be ready 
yet.  I will try to push out an update for it later today.
