-1 for citation, it is too generic for a root class name.
I've been trying to capture the methodology used to date for naming in
I started to write a few words on microformats root class names in
Unfortunately most of the actual methodology content for root class names in
particular is captured in my brain dump of hCard parsing here:
There is some history in the mailing list on this as well, but as is the
case with email lists, it is difficult to find/search out.
If you look at other "established" / adopted microformats, you'll see that
they have fairly unique-ish root class names as well.
hCalendar - vevent, vcalendar (taken from RFC2445)
hReview - hreview (by pattern extension)
xFolk - xfolkentry (I would have picked just 'xfolk' today, not sure why we
went with xfolkentry)
hListing proposal - hlisting
I believe when Rohit Khare first proposed coming up with a citation
microformat back in 2005 May at the WWW2005 conference in Tokyo, he used
"hBib" or "hCite" (I don't quite remember, perhaps Rohit will see this and
speak up) as a candidate name for the microformat.
Thus here is another suggestion, based on what I remember of Rohit's idea,
for the root class name for the citation microformat:
