Microformats Wiki

Welcome to the microformats wiki. There's a lot going on around here, but feel free to jump in and offer your assistance.

But First:

Please read how-to-play before making any edits.

Please read process before proposing any new microformats.

Introduction

What are microformats? See the about page for an overview, and the introduction page for more info. Recent press and presentations are also a good place for some background reading as well.

One popular definition from our mailing list 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

Specifications

Microformats open standards specifications (see also: implementations)

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.
