These are great quotes. I've added them to the <http://
microformats.org/wiki/introduction> page. Feel free to hack further.
== What are Microformats? ==
Microformats are the "dictionaries" of XHTML semantic content. They
are for codifying commonly used information-rich HTML content in such
a way that semantic meaning can be machine extracted. In short, they
are the easiest-possible way to design data (or data formats)
intended for reuse on the web.
