microformats easier than xml

(This article is a stub, feel free to expand upon it)

From Sören Nils 'chucker' Kuklau:

All you have to do is learn to use a few more class names, which virtually every browser already supports anyway, due to their extensive use in CSS.

And because you're just using HTML/XHTML classes, you can already benefit from the way a browser treats them. You don't have to reinvent the wheel, so to speak. Namespaced elements would require you to come up with styling for every single element, but using (X)HTML classes lets you take advantage of the existing styling of (X)HTML elements.
