<entry-title>Welcome to the microformats wiki!</entry-title>
If Your Looking for An Estate Agent in Kildare or want to view houses for sale in the Kildare area or maybe you want to see houses to Rent then we can help.
Please start with the [[introduction]] page and read [[how-to-play]] before making any edits.
This wiki is the central resource of the microformats community. You'll find current versions of published microformat specifications, specification drafts and publishing patterns. The wiki also hosts development resources, such as brainstorming pages for new formats and issue tracking pages for all current and in-development microformats.
== Get Started==
To get started with microformats:
* First, be familiar writing your pages and applications with semantically rich, descriptive, ‘[[posh|<abbr title="Plain Old Semantic HTML">POSH</abbr>]]’ <abbr title="HyperText Mark-up Language">HTML</abbr>.
* Learn about microformats from the [http://microformats.org/about/ about page], [http://microformats.org/ blog], [[press]], [[presentations]], [[books]], [[podcasts]], & [[screencasts]] pages.
* Take a look at established specifications such as [[hcard|hCard]] and [[hcalendar|hCalendar]], and follow the [[hcard-examples|examples]] to start publishing microformats.
* Have questions? Read the [[faq|frequently asked questions]] and see the [[glossary]] for terms and definitions. You can also post to the {{MicroformatsMailingList}}.
* Want to learn more in person? Check out microformats [[events]].
Microformats are small patterns of HTML to represent commonly published things like [[hcard|people]], [[hcalendar|events]], [[hatom|blog posts]], [[hreview|reviews]] and [[rel-tag|tags]] in web pages.
Microformats enable the publishing of higher fidelity information on the Web; the fastest and simplest way to provide feeds and APIs for the information in your website.
* Read more explanations of [[what-are-microformats|what microformats are]], and [[what-can-you-do-with-microformats|what you can do with them]].
== How to contribute ==
Do you want to help take microformats to the next level?  You can:
* [[get-started|Get started]] by adding microformats to your website, services, and products.
* [[advocacy|Advocate]] the use of microformats on other web sites, especially those you use.
* Write a [[testimonial]].
* Do something on the [[to-do|to do list]].
* Join the [[irc|IRC Channel]] and [[mail|mailing lists]] to learn and help answer questions (read the [[mailing-lists#General_guidelines|general guidelines]] before posting).
* [[Main_Page#microformats_wiki_translations|Translate this microformats wiki into other languages]] to make microformats more accessible to readers of languages around the world.
* Before proposing any new microformats, make sure your website is [[POSH]], [[get-started|uses existing microformats]], and then read the [[process]].
This wiki has a number of enhancements to assist development and contributions to microformats. Before you start editing, see the [[wiki-2|wiki introduction page]] for instructions.
== Specifications ==
The list of current, stable [[microformats|Microformats]] open standard specifications.
* [[hcalendar|hCalendar]] - [http://microformats.org/code/hcalendar/creator hCalendar creator]

* [[XMDP]]
* [[xoxo|XOXO]]
''If you're tempted to try your hand at writing a microformat please read '''[[process|the process]]''' page first!''
== Drafts ==
Drafts are newer microformats, for which the specifications haven't been completed yet. Drafts are somewhat mature in the development [[process]] (see [[exploratory-discussions]] for additional efforts that are not as far along in the process). The stability of these documents cannot be guaranteed, and implementers should be prepared to keep abreast of future developments and changes. Please watch the wiki pages for updates.
* [[adr|adr]] - for marking up address information
* [[geo|geo]] - for marking up [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WGS84 WGS84] geographic coordinates (latitude; longitude)
* [[hatom|hAtom]] - syndicating episodic content (e.g. weblog postings)
* [[haudio|hAudio]]
* [[hlisting|hListing]] - open, distributed listings
* [[hmedia|hMedia]] - A single media publishing format that relates to Images, Video and Audio.  
* [[hnews|hNews]]
* [[hproduct|hProduct]]
* [[hrecipe|hRecipe]] - for cooking+baking recipes
* [[hresume|hResume]] - for publishing resumes and CVs

== Design Patterns ==
{{design_patterns}} <!-- this can be edited in /wiki/Template:design_patterns -->
== Exploratory Discussions ==
See: [[exploratory-discussions]] for details of research and analysis of real-world [[examples]], existing formats, and brainstorming of possible new microformats, per the microformats [[process]].
== Examples ==
* [[examples-in-the-wild]]
* [[implementations]]
* [[zen-garden]]
== Resources ==
See [[resources]].
== User centric development ==

* [[Special:Specialpages|"Special" wiki pages]]

== 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|tools and services]] that need to process more than one microformat. That section is intended for editors, [[parsers]], [[validators]], test cases, and other information relevant across multiple microformats.
