    vkonnect - Microdata formats (and other RDF - Rich Data Formats) are a form of mark up tags to express specific information. HTML5 contains some specific formats for address data. Microdata formats can be used for review data. I have speculated for a while that these will be used by search engines as it helps to specifically identify content, and that potentially has beneficial effects. I see Ecommerce sites being able to take advantage of Microdata formats for product specs and reviews.

    Here is an example

    <dl itemscope itemtype="http://vocab.example.net/book" itemid="urn:isbn:0-330-34032-8"> <dt>Title <dd itemprop="title">The Reality Dysfunction <dt>Author <dd itemprop="author">Peter F. Hamilton <dt>Publication date <dd><time itemprop="pubdate" datetime="1996-01-26">26 January 1996</time></dl>

    from the HTML5 specification
