Microformats Primer : Comments
November 14, 2005
Although I like the hCard microformat, I am not sure I like the use of compact=“compact” in XOXO format (anyone wonder why they named this microformat after “hugs and kisses” :-)). I am going to have to ponder this some more but the first thought that came to my head was that the attribute compact was being misused as a means of hiding content (using CSS). The problem is that someone without a CSS-browser will see all of the content and therefore get something different than those with a CSS-capable browser and what about screen-readers that read hidden content.
