Why? So why should you use microformats? Then, Dan Web has created a simple JavaScript library called ‘Sumo’ that extracts microformats for use with JavaScript . How? Well, if you’ve gotten this far, it’s obvious you and microformats were meant for each other. hCalendar hCalendar is an easy way to mark up events.
