in RDFa 1.1. The post acks the fact that you have 3 technologies
available (microformats, rdfa and microdata) and that search engines use
to handle those three. This will not stop. Microdata is not a
recommendation, and it is very controversial in HTML5. RDFa is much more
stable from my point of view, and more importantly, _extensible_.
