Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


More microformat fun

OK, now this page has an hCard. See if you can find it.

Coffee review now outputs hReview tags in RSS

OK, now the reviews RSS feed has hReview tags.

I haven't got it quite sorted out - the <a> tags don't have classes, and often I've said something like this:

<span class="foo"><a href="bar">some text here</a></span>

... where the <span> should probably live inside the <a>.

After talking to Kevin Marks and Tantek Çelik, I've changed how the tags line up a bit, and made it somewhat cleaner.

The tags are also present when you see a review on the site - anything under the /cafe and /user hierarchy.

Next on the list: put hCards in on the user and cafe pages.

I think this makes the NZ coffee review the first "real review site" to use the hReview microformat :-)

To do: figure out if anybody is using RVW, and if so, put RVW info in the RSS feed as well.
