The HTML Data Task Force of the Semantic Web Interest Group has published two Notes today:
- The HTML Data Guide aims to help publishers and consumers of HTML data. With several syntaxes (microformats, microdata, RDFa) and vocabularies (schema.org, Dublin Core, microformat vocabularies, etc.) to choose from, it provides guidance on deciding what to choose in a way that meets the publisher’s or consumer’s needs.
- The Microdata to RDF describes processing rules that may be used to extract RDF from an HTML document containing microdata.
Both documents are Interest Group Notes, meaning that no further work is planned on the documents themselves, although future Working Groups may use these as input documents for further Recommendation Work.
