Mahalo Adds Microformats


A microformat is a web-based approach to semantic markup that seeks to re-use existing XHTML and HTML tags to convey metadata and other attributes. This approach allows information intended for end-users to also be automatically processed by software.

Microformats are a way of adding simple markup to human-readable data items such as events, contact details or locations, on web pages, so that the information in them can be extracted by software and indexed, searched for, saved, cross-referenced or combined.

More technically, they are items of semantic markup, using just standard “plain old semantic HTML” (i.e. “POSH“) with a set of common class-names and “rel” values. They are open and available, freely, for anyone to use.

  4. Hey, good stuff, glad to see more real-life microformats rolling out.

    I recently wrote an microFormats introduction and simple step-by-step tutorial for virtually anyone to get their first “Web 3.0” microformat page up in 7 minutes or less. Some folks might find it too simplistic, but I thought it was kind of cool do actually do this in a few minutes…
