** 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. They are intended for script authors to have a space in which they can play without ever clashing with anything the browser does.

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.
