Item Examples

From the The microformats process:

*-examples. Find examples on today's web of the the type of content you think needs a microformat. Document them with URLs. Document the implicit schemas that the content examples imply. This is the action that helps follow principle 3, design for humans first, machines second ... adapt to current behaviors and usage patterns.

This page documents how items and things are marked up and represented on the web.

In Existing Microformats
