I think that individual messages in a chat log should be formatted as XHTML paragraphs (<code>&lt;p&gt;</code>), because this is how conversations are usually formatted. From the [[chat-examples|examples]] I gather that this is also what the [[chat-examples#ILRT_Logger_Bot_Format|ILRT Logger Bot]] currently does. --[[User:BigSmoke|BigSmoke]] 13:09, 21 Jun 2006 (PDT)

Requirements

Scope

Should a microformat matching these requirements be capable of representing only transcripts of existing IM protocols or should it also be able to serve as an exchange format itself. This might be useful for simple AJAX IM platforms, although I doubt if XMPP is not per definition a better choise for such purposes. --BigSmoke 13:09, 21 Jun 2006 (PDT)

Chat rooms

Is it useful for this microformat to support the representation of "chat rooms", such as IRC channels? --BigSmoke

Example playground

<div class="hchat-log">
  <p class="hchat-msg">
    <abbr class="time" title="YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS">HH:MM:SS</abbr>
    <!-- Please, fill me in -->
  </p>
</div>

Ideas

Using paragraphs to represent chat messages

I think that individual messages in a chat log should be formatted as XHTML paragraphs (<p>), because this is how conversations are commonly formatted. From the examples I gather that this is also what the ILRT Logger Bot currently does. --BigSmoke 13:09, 21 Jun 2006 (PDT)
