Earlier Description

Title: Microformats: Evolving the Web

Summary:

As the web design, development, IA, and blogging communities have adopted more and more valid semantic (X)HTML, two key realizations have emerged: there is a need to express common information building blocks on pages such as people, addresses, events, reviews etc., and (X)HTML lacks the built-in semantics to do so.

Microformats are a set of simple open data formats that provide an evolutionary approach to easily expressing such common building blocks on today's Web. In contrast to dedicated XML schemas, microformats for events or contact info are familar XHTML with semantic class names, making them trivial to embed in existing content, style with CSS, and interoperate with desktop applications.
