Over coffee this morning, Ryan, Tantek and I discussed the need for
generalized markup for figures like photos, tabular data, graphs and
so on in blog posts.
In particular, the way that images are typically rendered in a blog
post by default leaves something to be desired (floating right with
some margin helps tremendously but requires that styling to be applied
inline or via theme/stylesheet).
The WordPress theme Kubrick uses the classes "alignright",
"aligncenter" and "alignleft" to handle these things, but those
classes are hardly semantic or generalizable. What we need is a way to
encapsulate any kind of figure and then use other microformats like
hCard for citations or credit, Fotonotes and so on.
Anyway, I thought I would throw this out there and see what the CW is.
hFigure might be something to think about...
