'''data in HTML concept'''

* 2000-03-21 [http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-interest/2000Mar/0103 Dan Connolly proposed that XHTML be used] as the source of data (as opposed to databases, RDF, random XML etc.). <blockquote>We all know that we have to produce a human-readable version<br/> of the thing... why not use that as the primary source?</blockquote> While no-one who created/founded XFN or microformats was on that list or saw it until years after the fact, it's the earliest reference found so far for the concept of preferring HTML for the primary source of data.

How to add things

The history is chronologically (not reverse) ordered (earliest first).

The history is greatly in need of further documentation with specific dates. Please contribute what you can find and cite/hyperlink sources!

Here are some sources to mine for historical facts related to microformats:

Things to document in the history record

Things better documented elsewhere

This page is for the history of microformats and is thus scoped to just that. Microformats are of course built upon many other technologies and concepts, but let's avoid diluting this page with items which are not specific to microformats, even if they are related. I've moved some content to the following pages which folks are free to add more to if they wish.
