Here's a demo screencast [1] -- there's a few issues with the
screencapture tool and my script -- of a tool I've been working on to
analyze microformats on a page and allow you to perform actions on
each microformat.

In particular, I'm looking a hAtom and showing the content (both as
formatted and unformatted HTML), printing out a weblog entry (or if it
was used, a comment, or a newspaper entry) and "reblogging" -- that
is, quoting an entry for reuse in my own blog.

I'm off on vacation for a couple of days but when I'm back I'll
probably polish up this demo and make it available on the net (i.e. at

It will get even more interesting with hCards and hCalendars, where
you can look at events or whatever on the net and load them directly
into your own blog/information repository. If you were looking for
used cars, or someone to hire, then the same process would follow.

Regards, etc...
