This is an exploratory page to document product examples currently published around the web. Typically, the metadata associated with this content is stored in non-semantic markup and proprietary formats. The purpose of the studies on this page is to serve as background for the design of a simple distributed product microformat.

Clothes

Link to product rather than actual product immediately available for sale. Personally marked-up and used rel-product ideas to link to the shop.

  • Image
    • Thumbnail
  • Product
    • Type
    • Title
  • Properties
    • Color
  • Link
    • Buy this Online (rel=product)

Mark-up:

<div class="hproduct">
	<img src="#" alt="polo shirt" class="product-thumb" />
	<h3 class="product-type">Polo Shirt</h3>
	<h4 class="product-title">Coxmoor</h4>
	<p class="p-v"><span class="property">Color:</span> <span class="value">289 Rush</span></p>
	<p><a href="poloshirt/coxmoor/" title="Buy This Online" rel="product">Buy This Online</a></p>
</div>

CDs

Additionally the site has links to products on Amazon.

  • Image
    • Thumbnail
  • Product
    • Title
  • Properties
    • Artist
  • Link
    • Buy this Online (rel=product)
  • Currency implementation

Mark-up:

<div class="hproduct">
	<a href="#" rel="product">
	   <img src="assets/images/timeline/amazon/small-faces.gif" alt="Small Faces Album" class="product-thumb" />
	</a>
	<h3 class="product-title"><a href="#" rel="product">Ogdens' Nut Gone Flakes</a></h3>
	<h4 class="p-v"><span class="property artist">Small Faces</span></h4>
	<p class="product-buy"><a href="#" title="Buy this online" rel="product">Buy from Amazon</a></p>
	<p class="money"><abbr class="currency" title="GBP">£</abbr><span class="amount">6.99</span></p>
</div>


The use of Non-visible property names made it possible to have an invisible property of 'artist'. Having 'Artist: Small Faces' was not in the visual specification of the Ben Sherman site.
