** Note that the data-* stuff is explicitly 'not' for Microformats, at least not Microformats that ever want to be handled natively by the browser. Those attributes are defined in such a way that browsers will never do anything special with them, ever.

Microformats in HTML 5

This page is to document future use of microformats in HTML 5. None of the items documented are supported now, and may change upon proper development within the microformats community, or changes in the HTML 5 specification. This page is to track HTML5 enabled enhancements to microformats, and issues that HTML5 raises. It may be used to track issues which we need to push back into the HTML 5 development process.
