Hi All

I have just added HTML and Zipped HTML file support to
http://ufxtract.com. It can be used to help build file import/export for
HTML files containing microformats. UfXtract has had this feature for a
few months, I have made it public in light of Facebook's new date export
which also uses Zipped HTML files but with no microformat/RDF markup.

As this API needs you to POST binary data, you cannot use the usual
cross domain JSON calls. I am working on allowing the new cross domain
XHR/AJAX calls, but for the time being I would suggest using server-side
proxies to get  around any "same origin policy" issues. 

The HTML file in any zipped file should be named index.html. The
extension of zipped files is not important, the API discovers the file
type by examining its contents.
