Tantek Çelik: microformats2 and bits of HTML5

I’ve been asked quite a bit recently, “Do I regret devoting a good sized section of Hardboiled Web Design to microformats when authors and browsers have largely ignored them?” My answer’s always been “no”, although microformats haven’t been adopted as much as I’d hoped they would be, if nothing else they provide some great naming conventions for our attribute values.

Out in Lisbon, at the end of a pretty packed week for European conferences, Tantek gave a talk on ‘microformats2 and bits of HTML5’. I’d missed what Tantek and others have been working on for microformats2. It’s worth your time running through his presentation and then following up on the microformats2 wiki.


I’m fully booked until January 2021.

Talk soon
