Microformats, Institute of Engineering and Technology

  1. 1. Nishikant P TaksandeSchool of Electronics and Computer Science University of Southampton
  2. 2. EvolutionConclusionsMicroformats-awareImplementationTypesWhy Microformats? applicationsIntroductionBackground
  3. 3. “Designed for human first and machinesecond, microformats are a set of simple, opendata format build upon existing and widely adoptedstandards.” -Microformats.org
  4. 4. Microformats adds semantics to web pages Smart content Meaningful markup http://www.flickr.com/photos/veerles-blog/172851392/
  5. 5. Separate file format for machine-readable information, howeverpowerful, may not succeed simply because it uses another file [3]Utilizing established standards to add semantics is the preferredwayWriters with some knowledge of HTML can add semanticinformation to web page like calendar events (hCalendar) andcontact information (hCard).

  9. 9. Microformats are not new languageMicroformats use HTML and XHTML power to create machinereadable information in simpler wayClever use of css class which serves the purpose of styling andproviding semantic information at one place
