Exposing microformats

Side by side comparison

After getting a new tool for composing microformats, we now have a new technique for exposing those newly minted microformatted hcards.

Jon Hicks has created expose-mf.css as a browser CSS add-on that will reveal hcards inline, as opposed to external to the page, like Tails.

While there are some obvious bugs, this technique demonstrates how revealing embedding microformats in webpages can become a great tool for data discovery and manipulation.
