HTML5, document metadata and Dublin Core

Pete Johnston, eFoundations, Feb 01, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Very good and very detailed account of Dublin Core metadata embedded in HTML4 and HTML5 pages. Especially interesting is the use of the HTML5 microdata element, the wayward child of the old microformat specification. "Microdata offers similar functionality to that offered by RDFa in that it allows for the embedding of data anywhere in an HTML5 document. Like RDFa, microdata is a generalised mechanism, not one tied to any particular set of terms, and also like RDFa, microdata introduces a new set of attributes, to be used in combination with existing HTML5 attributes."
