Hi Scott,

This is pretty cool. For a long time I didn't think S5 was worth
pursuing as a microformat, because it slides online in HTML didn't
seem "common" enough.

Perhaps there are now sufficient examples in the wild and tools to
work it through the microformats process?

I've been posting S5 presentations publicly for quite some time here:


Perhaps consider starting this page with the examples you've found so far:




I made an HTML5 tutorial video/book! http://tantek.com/html5
