Recently we’ve highlighted a few instances where we’ve incorporated microformats into web applications and websites (e.g. faculty schedules and the 2006 Nobel Conference site). We’ve even hinted that more microformat-enabled goodies are in the works, yet we’ve only given very cursory overviews as to their purpose, importance, and usage. Rather than embark on our own overwhelmingly recondite explanation of the “what and why” behind microformats, we’ve compiled a quick list of helpful links that should considerably demystify the subject.

Understanding microformats is key to gaining further insight into real world semantics and furthering the cause of web standards, so if you have any thoughts or questions, we’d love to hear them.
