How about:

        Microformats are a set of tools, which use widely-adopted
        standards to make common types of data (for example events or
        licensing terms) easy to read, by both humans and machines. They
        do this by describing them in a simple and versatile, yet
        strictly defined, way. Learn more about microformats.

Of course, there may be more suitable examples.
