Microformats wiki pages naming conventions

All pages on this wiki should follow these naming conventions:

  1. All lowercase.
  2. Dashes between words.
  3. XMDP profile pages for microformat specs should be named with the name of the spec, followed by "-profile"
  4. Avoid any use of hierarchy "/"*
  5. US English spelling for English pages (re-use of W3C Manual of Style Spelling Editorial Guideline.)

Any violations will be deleted (or moved).

See the related (but differently applicable) naming-principles for how we figure out how to name microformats themselves and microformats properties.

* The only exceptions to the no hiearchy rule are the rest and events pages/spaces. REST is for a completely different subset of microformats related discussions, and events is either an arbitrary exception or a bit of an experiment.


See mediawiki-customization for brief notes on how the microformats wiki is different from a "typical" MediaWiki install, in many ways to help with how-to-play and naming-conventions.
