Clever application of existing XHTML elements and class attributes can make it easier to describe people, places, events, and other semistructured information in human-readable form. In this paper, the author takes a more detailed look at some examples of microformats, the general principles by which they can be constructed, and how a community of users is forming around these seemingly ad hoc specifications to advance the cause of what some call an alternative to the semantic Web, the…

TLDR
This tutorial explains and describes the use of several microformats, which make information marked up in HTML available for use in applications outside traditional Web browsers, and suggest ways to refine current Web design practice.
Modeling Implicit Knowledge from Microformatted Websites
TLDR
This work introduces a formal model able to represent the classes provided by microformats, and their relations, in a graph like structure, namely semantic network, where edges are labeled with predicates.
Wiki Semantics via Wiki Templating
A foreseeable incarnation of Web 3.0 could inherit machine understandability from the Semantic Web, and collaborative editing from Web 2.0 applications. We review the research and development trends
Tal4Rdf: Lightweight Presentation for the Semantic Web
TLDR
Tal4Rdf, a template based language, which uses intuitive path-based expressions for querying RDF data, allows to easily generate any XML or textual output format, using available and proven technologies, has the potential to become a “scripting language for presentation”.
Aplicações Semânticas Baseadas em Microformatos
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to describe some recent examples on how this technology can be applied in the context of Semantic Web.
A Practical Approach to Modeling and Extracting Information from Semantic Web Based on Microformats
TLDR
This work presents a practical approach for modeling (microformat based) semantic relations between web pages by means of classical graph like data structures, such as semantic networks, and implements the special set of entrance points to the semantic network.
Analysis of approaches to structured data on the web
TLDR
In this paper, the formats, technologies and approaches that are used today for publishing semantic, machine readable data, on the web are reviewed and compared.

TLDR
This paper presents a model for web databases containing casual, every-day information like that published by used car dealerships, resellers, and other data contained in web databases and shows how to integrate these sites into the landscape of the Semantic Web by transparently converting and forwarding queries to conventional web databases.
Templates, microformats and structured editing
TLDR
A language to specify semantically rich XML languages in terms of other XML languages, such as XHTML, that is versatile enough to represent templates that can capture the overall structure of large documents as well as the fine details of a microformat.
Wiki content templating
TLDR
This paper presents a thorough study ofWiki content templating, showing how its two state of the art models are sub-optimal, and proposes a third, better, model called lightly constrained (LC) Templating and shows its implementation in the Moin wiki engine.
