Having followed the discussions on this matter for some time, it seems
to me that we are indeed reaching a limit here, in terms of keeping both
compliant with XHTML semantics and adhering to a (unwritten?) principle
that microformats should not influence how the human-readable content is
written in the first place.
For those implementations not willing to say "to hell with validity",
could they get away with a machine-readable content for dates that gets
For instance, the HTML would be <span class="dstart
date">2005-10-10T10:10:10-0100</span>, but by way of a "data pretty
it would be displayed as "10:10am on October 10th 2005".
Is this a heresy? What do you think?
