Most webmasters are familiar with HTML tags on their pages. Usually, HTML tags tell the browser how to display the information included in the tag.
Don't get too excited by the title. But I do want to share a few thoughts... It was running through my head just now, the work that we were doing here in Moncton to work on an e-learning cluster.
Update: Joe from the Squio blog has posted a response to this entry. Microformats are a wildly popular set of formats for embedding metadata within normal XHTML.
A microformat (sometimes abbreviated μF ) is a web-based approach to semantic markup which seeks to re-use existing HTML / XHTML tags to convey metadata [ 1 ] and other attributes in web pages and other contexts that support (X)HTML, such as RSS . This approach allows software to process information intended for end-users (such as contact information , geographic coordinates , calendar events, and the like) automatically. Although the content of web pages is technically already capable of "automated processing", and has been since the inception of the web, such processing is difficult because the traditional markup tags used to display information on the web do not describe what the information means. [ 2 ] Microformats can bridge this gap by attaching semantics , and thereby obviate other, more complicated, methods of automated processing, such as natural language processing or screen scraping .
Microdata is a WHATWG HTML specification used to nest semantics within existing content on web pages. [ 1 ] Search engines , web crawlers , and browsers can extract and process Microdata from a web page and use it to provide a richer browsing experience for users. Search engines benefit greatly from direct access to this structured data because it allows search engines to understand the information on web pages and provide more relevant results to users. [ 2 ] [ 3 ] Microdata uses a supporting vocabulary to describe an item and name-value pairs to assign values to its properties. [ 4 ] Microdata is an attempt to provide a simpler way of annotating HTML elements with machine-readable tags than the similar approaches of using RDFa and Microformats .
ConceptNet aims to give computers access to common-sense knowledge , the kind of information that ordinary people know but usually leave unstated.
Gellish is a formal language that is natural language independent, although its concepts have 'names' and definitions in various natural languages.
Years ago, we made a decision to put all our Python packages in a common namespace called csc .
