bookmark / In Search of Microformats

entry-title / In Search of Microformats

obviously if Optimus can find those properties on the hentry, then they are not "not specified".

  • Expected behavior: if Optimus finds a property on an hentry, then it should not complain about that property being not specified.

bookmark is not required

According to hAtom, rel-bookmark is an optional property of hentry, however, when validating microformats.org, Optimus states:

Required property ‘bookmark’ not specified.


  • Expected behavior: Optimus should not state that rel-bookmark is required on hentry, and if rel-bookmark is not specified, Optimus should perhaps simply provide a warning, that

better error documentation

  • Enhancement: Whenever Optimus reports an error or warning, it would be great if the error message linked to the section of the specification that is being violated.
