Microformats let you share structured information in HTML web pages. Although the information is visible to human readers--as it should be--software can also extract structured information.
This Short Cut is a general introduction to the history of microformats and an explanation why these ideas are rocketing to the forefront of technology. It includes information and examples on how to add all of the popular microformats used and consumed today to your documents. Also included is discussion of where the idea behind microformats originated and why the microformats process is so open for everyone to contribute.
With millions of instances of microformats on the Web, isn't it about time to learn what it's all about?
Brian Sudadiscovered the Web in 1996 and since then has spend a great deal of each day exploring its nooks and crannies. His own small piece of the web to feed and groom can be found at http://suda.co.uk/
The reason I had only 35 pages is because the printer ran out of paper!! The last pages were pretty good! They discussed the manner to create the CSS for the attributes and some great links in the Resources section; - so you may want to diet for a day and get the book.
You will be paying for 37 single sided pages (not the advertised 40 somthing) of nicely written and formatted information that has little more to offer than the http://microformats.org/ site will give you. Buy a super burrito instead.
