Well, this is my first post to this mailing list and I thought i'd start
by addressing a problem thats been annoying me for a while.
I can't seem to find a microformat for poetry. I often write poems and
post them to my blog (http://blog.yarrt.com), and I sometimes wonder about
the best way to code them. Below is the method I have thought of (with one
of my poems as an example):
[Heading Text Here, possibly a <h1>, <h2>, etc, depending on the context]
Standing by the roadside,<br />
A tall dark man,<br />
Wore a long brown coat,<br />
Stood in the rain.
Explained he had no home,<br />
Just travelled the country,<br />
Sleeping on the streets,<br />
Begging for his food.
"Why is he helping me?",<br />
"Where am I going?",<br />
He must have wondered,<br />
While stepping into the car.
He seemed uneasy,<br />
Not sure to trust me,<br />
He had seem too much,<br />
To trust people blindly.
I would suggest marking it up with the following CSS rule:
Possibly with a border around the whole poem, but that is, of course,
completely up to you.
What do you all think?
