[uf-discuss] ISBN mark-up

Perhaps not a microformat, in the sense used here, but I feel that there
should be some way (or is there already?) for marking up an ISBN number,
so that it is recognisable as such.


        0 9507881-2-0
        0950 788120

If any one of those were marked up, something like:

        <span class="ISBN">0 9507881-2-0<\span>

or even:

        <isbn>0 9507881-2-0</isbn>

then user agents could be written in such a way that the spaces and
hyphens were ignored. It would also enable user agents to ignore, say:

        <p>Please order part number 0 9507881-2-0.</p>

Is it acceptable to use 'OpenURL COinS' in this way:

        <span class="Z3988"
