Purpose

A microformat to describe the contents of a (we)blog. It provides a specific set of information to categorize a (we)blog. Enables easier search for humans and efficient collection of information by machines.

Examples

Example 1:

<div class="blogformat" xml:lang="de">
   <img class="logo" src="http://example.org/logo.gif" alt="" />
   <a class="bookmark" href="http://example.org/blog" title="Blog title">Blog name</a>
   <!-- Topics covered by the blog -->
   <ul class="categories">
     <li><a rel="tag" href="http://technorati.com/tags/Webstandards">Webstandards</a></li>
     <li><a rel="tag" href="http://technorati.com/tags/css">CSS</a></li>
     <li><a rel="tag" href="http://technorati.com/tags/xhtml">XHTML</a></li>
   </ul>
   <ul class="feeds"><!-- List of available news feeds -->
     <li><a rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" href="URL">Atom1.0</a></li>
     <li><a rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" href="http://example.org/rss-2.0">RSS 2.0</a></li>
   </ul>
   <!-- Describes the topics of the blog -->
   <p class="description">Webstandards, CSS, XHTML and topics releated to web development.</p>
</div> 

Example 2:
