I'm very interested. When I heard about microformats i thought it was
the perfect way to frame the discussion of bibliographies and
citation on the Internet. Admittedly, I've been a little gun-shy
being new to the game. I've contributed to the wiki examples and
questions a little bit, and was wondering about some borderline cases
we might want to present as examples.
Links in Slashdot's comments aren't anything exciting code, but they
do contain interesting information: Link, Title, Domain name.
John Gruber uses Footnote citations on his daringfireball.net, which
would probably make a good example of citation markup in the wild:
<p>I’ve been experimenting with the use of footnotes here on
Fireball over the last few months.<sup id='fnref1-2005-07-20'><a
href="#fn1-2005-07-20">1</a></sup> ... </p>
<p>E.g. “<a href='/2005/03/font_caches_gone_wild'>Font Caches
<a href="#fnref1-2005-07-20" class='footnoteBackLink' title="Jump
back to footnote 1 in the text.">↩</a></p>
If that seems like a true example, I'll put it in the wiki. In
addition, the wiki might need a little grooming. So far we have the
Citation seems out of place, and the two are definitely related. Like
I said, I'm new to this game, but enthused. Let me know how to help.
