=== simple class proposal ===
 
proposed format:
 
 
 
<nowiki><span class="operating-hours">
 
Tu-Sa 08:00-15:00; Sa 08:00-12:00
 
</span></nowiki>

Use a semicolon to separate the different days or or time ranges.
 
Use two letter english day names. Times are local times with leading zero
 
 
 
This is the format as used in openstreetmap.org for a node description with opening hours. Openstreetmap has very rigid semantics, so it makes sense to follow their format.
 
 
 
There are several issues with proposal:
 
<div class="issues discussion">
 
* no real world use case.  how would such a microformat help users? this should be documented in the introduction to an [[opening-hours]] effort. - [[User:Tantek|Tantek]] 21:17, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
 
* proposal is 'a priori' - that is proposal has been made without documentation of real world examples per the [[process]].  please document real world [[examples]] of pages that would benefit from this markup so we can design the format only for their needs and no more. - [[User:Tantek|Tantek]] 21:17, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
 
* did not research previous formats. we have no idea if this effort is reinventing various wheels or not. - [[User:Tantek|Tantek]] 21:17, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
 
* uses new datetime formats, e.g. "Tu-Sa". Is there some way to re-use ISO8601 instead? - [[User:Tantek|Tantek]] 21:17, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
 
* not international, e.g. "Tu-Sa". this could be addressed with ISO8601 usage instead. - [[User:Tantek|Tantek]] 21:17, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

This is an effort per the microformats The microformats process to research, gather examples, and brainstorm for a microformat for marking up the opening hours for a business or organization.

examples

Please see Best Practices for Examples Pages for how to research examples for a new format and then document them here:

  • ...

existing formats

Please document research into existing (non-microformat) formats for publishing opening hours (if any).

Preferably, create a separate page opening hours formats.

  • ...

brainstorming

Brainstorming proposals should only be written up after examples and formats research has been completed per the The microformats process.

See opening hours brainstorming.
