Internationalization

(AKA internationalisation, i18n.)

What can we do, to make microformats more easily usable, by people who are not publishing in (US) English?

Background

  • Internet and web standards in general use US English terms and spelling (ref: W3C, IETF) for elements, attributes, properties and values.
    • e.g. (X)HTML is defined in US English (e.g "color", "center").
  • However such standards also strongly advocate the support of character sets such as UTF-8 for broader/better support of international content.
