Hi all,

I thought you might be interested in some work I've been doing on

wouldn't go so far as to claim it _is_ a microformat. It allows a useful 
subset of RDF to be embedded in HTML without any markup invention or 
(hopefully) abuse of  element semantics. It makes no attempt at forcing 
the whole RDF model into HTML.

And a service that you can plug them into to extract the embedded RDF:


I wrote more about it in a message to the W3C semweb group:


I'd be interested in any feedback. I'm very keen not to abuse HTML 
semantics so please shout if you find any.
