Welcome to the microformats wiki!

Please start with the introduction page and read how-to-play before making any edits.



Microformats are small bits of HTML that represent things like people, events, tags etc. in webpages.

Microformats enable the publishing of higher fidelity information on the Web, providing the fastest & simplest way to support feeds and APIs for your website. See more explanations of what are microformats, and what you can do with them.

How to contribute

Do you want to help take microformats to the next level? You can:


Microformats open standards specifications (see also: implementations, examples-in-the-wild)


Design Patterns

Design patterns are common uses of markup across microformats.

Exploratory Discussions

Per the microformats process: research and analysis of real-world examples, existing formats, and brainstorming to motivate the microformat. Please check rejected-formats before making additions.


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.
