reinvented wheels

This page is here to document proposals that have been made one time or another that were simply reinventing functionality already present in semantic (X)HTML, in the hopes that by documenting attempts to reinvent the wheel, we can avoid or minimize re-re-inventions, and encourage re-use instead.

At some point perhaps we can order these more specifically by date. For now, I'm putting everything under 2005. - Tantek


2005

rel mobile

rel="mobile" is a reinvention of:

<link rel="alternate" media="handheld" ... />

But Atom doesn't have the 'media' attribute.

item

The so-called "item" microformat is a reinvention of <li>.

before 2005

OPML

OPML is a reinvention of <ul>, <ol>, <li>, as demonstrated by xoxo.
