One popular definition from our mailing list is "simple conventions for embedding semantics in HTML to enable decentralized development." More precisely, microformats can be defined as:
 
:simple conventions
 
:for embedding semantic markup
 
::for a specific problem domain
 
:in human-readable (X)HTML/XML documents, Atom/RSS feeds, and "plain" XML
 
::that normalize existing content usage patterns
 
::using brief, descriptive class names
 
::often based on existing interoperable standards
 
:to enable decentralized development
 
::of resources, tools, and services

The first place to look for examples, code, and test cases is in the pages for each individual microformat.

This section is intended for editors, parsers, validators, test cases, and other information relevant across multiple microformats.
