An Uber-comparison of RDFa, Microdata and Microformats | The Beautiful, Tormented Machine

“There has been a recent discussion at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) about the state of RDFa, Microdata and Microformats. The Technical Architecture Group (TAG) is concerned about the W3C publishing two specifications that achieve effectively the same thing in incompatible ways. They are suggesting that both RDFa 1.1 and Microdata, in their current state, should not proceed as official specifications until they become more compatible with one another. The W3C intends to launch a quick examination of the situation to determine whether or not there is room for convergence of these technologies.”
