I almost entirely agree with Mark Birbeck’s comparison of RDFa and microformats. The only thing to be said in defense of microformats is that a few of the problems Birbeck calls out are also features, from the microformats perspective.
But worse is better.
I will reveal what this means later.
Another quip: My problem with microformats is the s.
Evan Prodromou provided a still-good RDFa vs Microformats roundup (better title: “RDFa and Microformats, please work together”) in May. I somehow missed it until now.
Update 20061204: I didn’t miss Prodromou’s roundup in May, I blogged about it. And forgot.
