Microformats are designed to be similar to current markup styles. This means that it is quite possible that you won't have to do much work to produce microformats on your site.
+
-
 
+
-
For example...
+
-
 
+
-
* Do you have events information on your site? Then mark those events up with [[hCalendar]].
+
-
* Do you have people and their contact information? Then mark those up with [[hCard]].
+
-
* Do you have an explicit copyright license on your content? Then markup the link to your license with [[rel-license|relLicense]].
+
-
* Do you have social networking data? Then mark that up with [http://gmpg.org/xfn/ XFN]. Are you tagging things? Then use [[rel-tag|relTag]] or [[xFolk]].
+
-
* Are you publishing lists? Then use [[XOXO]].
+
-
* Do you publish reviews? Then use [[hReview]].
+
-
 
+
-
You see, many common kinds of content can be marked up in microformats. Chances are, you already have some of them on your site. Start with the obvious ones.
+
-
 
+
-
And here's a few more tips:
+
-
 
+
-
* Try to produce clean, semantic xhtml. Often this will get you very close to microformats on its own.
