Hello Steve,

Microformats are basically just semantic HTML with specification.

So,... anyone can make their own semantic HTML.  (Like picking an
using class names like these.  No need for XMDP or anything else.)

Microformats try to "standardize" what's already out there.  So that
everyone uses a common set of class names.

I'm already using the class-thumbnail and class-video thing.  So if
you and others start doing that too, then one day a Microformat can be
based on what we've done.

See ya
