History Brainstorming

Per the microformats The microformats process this is a brainstorming page considering the existing real world examples of historical information published on the Web.

Timelines

  • The "timeline" examples all seem to comprise a sequence of either actual or potential hCalendar events. While it may be possible to assume that any page containing multiple hCalendars represents a timeline, that would not account for pages containing two or more disparate timelines; or a set of hCalendar events which are unrelated, and thus not intended as a timeline. This could be remedied with a simple parent microformat, say hTimeline, with a title property (say "timeline-title"), thus:
	<span class="htimeline">
		<p class="timeline-title">Timeline 1</p>
		[hCalendar]
		[hCalendar]
		[hCalendar]
	</span>

	<span class="htimeline">
		<p class="timeline-title">Timeline 2</p>
		[hCalendar]
		[hCalendar]
		[hCalendar]
	</span>
