Microformats: Empowering Your Markup for Web 2.0

Microformats burst onto the scene a couple of years ago and are fast

becoming an essential tool for all professional web designers and

developers. Imagine being able to integrate all of your web-based

contact details, tagged articles, and geographical information

seamlessly in web and desktop applications, without having to add

anything extra to your websites except a little specialized HTML markup.

Microformats provide a more formalized technology for adding commonly

used semantics (such as contact details, location, and reviews) to

today's Web. Unlike XML or the semantic Web, microformats use ubiquitous

technologies like HTML and XHTML, existing developer skills, and current

web tools, and, perhaps most important, they work in all of today's web

browsers. This book is a comprehensive guide to microformats. It

explores why, in Bill Gates's words, "We need microformats"; how

microformats work; and the kinds of problems microformats help solve.

the book covers every current microformat, with complete details of the

syntax, semantics, and uses of each, along with real-world examples and

a comprehensive survey of the tools available for working with them. the

book also features case studies detailing how major web content

publishers such as yahoo put microformats to work in their web

applications. Written by one of the Web's best-known educators, John

Allsopp, Microformats: Empowering Your Markup for Web 2.0 will help you

painlessly get up to speed with this exciting technology.

In this book you'll learn:

- How to take best advantage of the built-in semantics of XHTML and


- How to extend the semantics of HTML using microformats and open up a

world of new possibilities with web applications

- Every aspect of all the common microformats currently in use

- How microformats help your websites and applications easily

integrate with web applications like Google Maps, as well as desktop

applications like iCal, outlook, and entourage

- What innovative publishers and services, big and small, are doing

right now with microformat
