Sample Title Marked up Using x-hTitle Microformat Proposal

This blog entry will demonstrate using the proposed x-hTitle microformat to mark up a title. Since this is a sample for a microformat proposal, what better title to use than the one that I first read regarding the subject. So, without further adieu, here's a sample. One other quick note: I may edit this blog entry from time-to-time, adding more samples. Eventually, they will all be moved to the microformats.org site if this proposal becomes a draft specification.

Sample x-hTitle Formatted Title

Microformats: Empowering Your Markup for Web 2.0
Publisher: friends of ED
Edition: First Edition

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 yourr 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, locations, 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 all work in today's web browsers.

This book is a comprehensive guide to microformats. It explores why, in Bill Gates' 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.
