* Wouldn't ISO-80000 be a better reference standard, given that ISO-31 has been obsoleted? [[User:TobyInk|TobyInk]] 00:33, 7 Aug 2008 (PDT)

* Raised By <cite>[http://microformats.org/discuss/mail/microformats-new/2008-August/001668.html Glenn Jones]</cite> on microformats new <blockquote>Having different datatypes for a property of the same name is very problematic. Personally I would not like us to use ISO-8601 for hCalendar duration and ISO-31-1 for duration in hAudio. Some parsers do try to convert formats into datatypes this could become hellish if we use the same property names for different data formats.</blockquote>

** Solution 1 — Change <code>duration</code> to <code>interval</code>. [[User:WebOrganics|Martin McEvoy]] 14:48, 7 Aug 2008 (GMT)
 +
*** The problem with the name "interval" is that ISO-8601 (which microformats make use of!) defines a duration and an interval very differently. A duration is a length of time with no fixed starting or ending points — for example, "5 minutes". An interval is the span between two fixed times; a duration with fixed start and end points — for example, "five minutes starting now". I think we should avoid introducing a clash in terminology with ISO-8601.
 +
*** Agreed [[User:WebOrganics|Martin McEvoy]] 12:11, 8 Aug 2008 (GMT)
 +
** Solution 2 — Keep the name, and allow all properties which take a duration as their value (across all microformats!) to use this pattern. It can become a standard microformats design pattern. [[User:TobyInk|TobyInk]] 12:35, 7 Aug 2008 (PDT)

== Implementations ==
 +
 +
* The next released version of [http://buzzword.org.uk/cognition/ Cognition] will experimentally support four alternative syntaxes (syntaces?) for durations. They will be supported any place where a duration is expected. (e.g. hCalendar events, hAudio). As each syntax is quite different, you do not need to tell Cognition which syntax you will be using — this is detected automatically.
 +
** ISO 8601: e.g. <code><nowiki><span class="duration">PT1H2M3.4S</span></nowiki></code>
 +
** ISO 31-1 classes: As above.
 +
** SI: <code><nowiki><span class="duration">52 s</span></nowiki></code>. (Seconds are the only supported unit.)
 +
** [[measure|hmeasure draft]], with null "item" and with "type" set to "duration" or null. (Supported units: "seconds"/"s", "minutes"/"min", "hours"/"h", "days"/"d".)
 +
*** When multiple hmeasures are found within the duration, the first ''valid'' duration hmeasure (i.e. a valid hmeasure which meets the above criteria) is used.
