Scholarly HTML – major progress

Petermr, A Scientist, the Web, Mar 17, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

To me this looks like another project in the generic microformats project, but it's probably a useful exercise, and there may be more to it behind the scenes. The idea of Scholarly HTML (ScHTML) is to have a common method of including references and the like in HTML documents. According to the principles, "ScHTML is scholarly because it addresses the every-day problems scholars have in conveying the outputs of their work and providing education. Fundamental to the standard is a community-led process of creating broad range of tools for producing or consuming." Sure, maybe it's a case of reinventing the wheel. But in order to really appreciate the wheel, I think, you have to invent one for yourself.
