Adding a new garage door to your home is one of the most underrated ways to add value to it. Luckily, there are retailers and installers who specialize in garage doors who can help in determining what garage door best suits your home. Having a garage door professional service can also alleviate lots of headaches. It is no fun when you come home after a long day at work to find yourself not being able to enter your garage. Other problems may include a garage door that simply does not close, or how about that door that is stuck half way?

Exploratory Discussions

Main article: Exploratory Discussions

New: microformats2 has sufficiently stabilized to start using on public web pages and developing parsers and applications.

See: Exploratory Discussions for details of research and analysis of real-world Best Practices for Examples Pages, existing formats, and brainstorming of possible new microformats, per the microformats The microformats process.

Design Patterns

Design patterns are common uses of markup across microformats.

Archived

Past specifications, drafts, and exploratory discussions which have either lacked (or lost) wide publishing support, implementation, or have been superceded by newer specs (see also when does it make sense to demote a microformat spec). These may eventually be retired, deprecated, or reincorporated into other exploratory discussions.

Examples

Resources

See resources.

User centric development

Shared work areas

Tools, test cases, additional research

The first place to look for examples, code, and test cases is in the pages for each individual microformat. There are only a few cross-cutting tools and services that need to process more than one microformat. That section is intended for editors, Microformats Parsers, microformats validators, test cases, and other information relevant across multiple microformats.

 

Microformats wiki translations

You may read and edit microformats articles in many other languages:
