Microformats

Microformats are tiny little markup definitions built on top of, usually, HTML or XHTML.

The available microformats are hCalendar, hReview, hCard, RelLicense, RelTag, XFN Format etc.,

The basic format of hCard is to use vCard object/property names in lower-case for class names, and to map the nesting of vCard objects directly into nested XHTML elements.

For example, Here is a sample vCard

BEGIN:VCARD
VERSION:3.0
FN:Jeffrey Thomas
END:VCARD

and an equivalent in literal hCard:
< p class=”vcard”> < span class=”fn”>Jeffrey Thomas < \span > < \ p>

There are several ruby parser for parsing this microformats to mention a few like mofo, hpricot etc

Check the microformats wiki for further details.
