[uf-discuss] Visible Data...a Microformat requirement?

Thanks Charles.

However I still have no idea why these things apply to specifying which page
among of group of equivalent pages is authoritative and why Microformats do
not.  The latter seem a perfect fit to me, and what you listed either don't
apply to general web pages, are years off and can't be used today, are not
related, or don't provide the features needed. The microformat concept would
work perfectly for this (and similar problems.)

Hello Mike,

XML, Semantic HTML, and RDF are closely related to what is being done here.

But there's alot of other technologies for specific areas.  Like with
multimedia type thigns we have SMIL, XSPF, etc etc.

For databases like things we have CSV, TSV, HTML tables, etc etc.

(Obviously I'm not going to try to enumerate every "area" and every
technology... but hopefully this will give you an idea.)
