Thanks Drew,

I've approached the uf process in detail a couple of times.

Once when working on the tagcloud stuff (and despite linking each  
step of the way to the process, still seem to have effed it up.)

So, take two was for my bok, where we decided a chapter on the  
process was important for contextualizing, despite the significant  
majority of people interested in ufs being unlikely to ever develop a  
uf - the process is a key part of what makes something a microformat,  
and when I speak it is often question #1 - "how does something become  
a uf"?

Actually, recently, for the workshop I am involved in at IA Summit, I  
felt it important to cover the process, and so revisited the process  

I've found each time it some work to really understand the process in  
detail (hence my original ^&*# up with tagclouds) and even with the  
flowchart, I am not sure I've got it 100% right :-/

I know it comes up quite a bit, particularly with those interested in  
proposing a microformat, where we typically refer them off to the  
I hope something visual like this can help a bit. But of course, it  
has to be right!

thank again
