== Introduction ==

[[what-are-microformats|What are microformats]]? And [[what-can-you-do-with-microformats|what can you do with them]]? See the [ about page] for an overview, and the [[introduction]] page for more info.  Recent [[press]], [[presentations]], [[podcasts]], and [[screencasts]] are also a good place for some background reading/listening. Frequently asked questions are answered in the [[faq]].  Want something or want to contribute?  Help with things [[to-do]].  Want to learn more in person? Check out microformats [[events]].
One popular definition from our [ mailing list] (see also: [[mailing-lists]]) is "simple conventions for embedding semantics in HTML to enable decentralized development." More precisely, microformats can be defined as:
:simple conventions
:for embedding semantic markup
::for a specific problem domain
:in human-readable (X)HTML/XML documents, Atom/RSS feeds, and "plain" XML
::that normalize existing content usage patterns
::using brief, descriptive class names
::often based on existing interoperable standards
:to enable decentralized development
::of resources, tools, and services

== 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. This section is intended for editors, parsers, validators, test cases, and other information relevant across multiple microformats.
*[ Source code repository]
*[[vcard-implementations]], [[vcard-errata]]
== shared work areas ==
* [[buttons]] {{NewMarker}}
* [[demo]] - a page with links for quickly demonstrating microformats working in practice.
* [[events]] {{NewMarker}}
* [[to-do]]
* [[user-interface]]
* [[marked-for-deletion]]
== microformats wiki in other languages ==
You may read and edit microformats articles in many other languages:
* languages with over 50 articles
** [[Main_Page-fr|Français (French)]] {{NewMarker-fr}}
* languages with over 2 articles
** [[Main_Page-ja|日本語 (Japanese)]]
** [[Main_Page-es|Español (Spanish)]]
* languages with 2 articles
** [[Main_Page-de|Deutsch (German)]]
==== microformats translations elsewhere ====
These are offsite pages/sites with translations about microformats.  If you are working on one of these, please consider translating the main microformats website!

=== Start a microformats wiki in another language ===
Don't see the language you want?  Help translate the microformats wiki into another language!
We're still figuring this out. 
For now, see the [ Wikipedia page on Multilingual coordination], and [ How to start a new Wikipedia] for some good general tips, advice, and community conventions.
You may want to start with the list of [[stable-pages]], which are pages that are relatively stable, and have only minimal/editorial changes, which makes them much easier to keep in sync with the English versions, by using the [[Special:Watchlist|my watchlist]] feature (use it to watch the pages you've translated for changes).
Page naming: for the translated version of a page, use the same name for the page, and simply add the RFC 3066 language identifier code as a dash suffix. E.g. for the French version, [[Main_Page]] becomes [[Main_Page-fr]], and [[how-to-play]] becomes [[how-to-play-fr]].
