==Definition==
 +
 
 +
One popular definition from our [http://microformats.org/discuss/ mailing list] (see also: [[mailing-lists]]) 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
 +
 
 +
Simply put: "Microformats are a codification of convention." -- [http://easy-reader.net Aaron Gustafson]
 +
 
 +
"Or do you just use your browser to browse? That's so 20th century." -- [http://diveintomark.org Mark Pilgrim]

Microformats Wiki

Hello! Welcome to the microformats wiki. If this is your first visit, please see the Introduction to Microformats page.

Please read How to Play before making any edits.

Please read The microformats process before proposing any new microformats.

Getting Started

What are microformats? What can you do with them?

The about page, latest news, plus recent press, presentations, microformats podcasts, and screencasts are also good places for some background information. Our cheat-sheet are handy if you need a quick reminder about a particular microformat.

Frequently asked questions about the wiki and microformats in general are answered in the FAQ, and there is a glossary.

Want to learn more in person? Check out microformats events.

Definition

One popular definition from our mailing list (see also: Mailing Lists) 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

Simply put: "Microformats are a codification of convention." -- Aaron Gustafson

"Or do you just use your browser to browse? That's so 20th century." -- Mark Pilgrim

How to contribute

Do you want to help take microformats to the next level? You can:

Specifications

Microformats open standards specifications (see also: Microformats Implementations, examples-in-the-wild)

Drafts

Design Patterns

Design patterns are common uses of markup across microformats.

Exploratory Discussions

Per the microformats The microformats process: research and analysis of real-world Best Practices for Examples Pages, existing formats, and brainstorming to motivate the microformat. Please check rejected-formats before making additions.

Examples

Tools, Test Cases and Additional Research

The first place to look for examples, code, and test cases is in the pages for each individual microformat. There are only a few cross-cutting tools and services that need to process more than one microformat. This section is intended for editors, parsers, validators, test cases, and other information relevant across multiple microformats.

shared work areas

microformats wiki in other languages

You may read and edit microformats articles in many other languages:

microformats translations elsewhere

These are off-site pages/sites with translations about microformats. If you are working on one of these, please consider translating the main microformats website!

Start a microformats wiki in another language

Don't see the language you want? Help translate the microformats wiki into another language!

We're still figuring this out.

For now, see the Wikipedia page on Multilingual coordination, and How to start a new Wikipedia for some good general tips, advice, and community conventions.

You may want to start with the list of Stable pages, which are pages that are relatively stable, and have only minimal/editorial changes, which makes them much easier to keep in sync with the English versions, by using the my watchlist feature (use it to watch the pages you've translated for changes).

Page naming: for the translated version of a page, use the same name for the page, and simply add the RFC 3066 language identifier code as a dash suffix. google E.g. for the French version, Main_Page becomes Main_Page-fr, and How to Play becomes Comment jouer.
