A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

Microformat proposal

Has a microformat been proposed around "Questions and Answers".

I think it would be good to mark a question and the corresponding answer in

<span class=qa><span class=question>Where does paul kinlan live?</span><span class=answer>liverpool</span></span>

It could help solve some semantic meaning to what part of text is a question and what is the anwser.

For instance I get a lot of searches coming to my site with queries such as "How do I...", "What does...". I could set up a "search engine" that parses pages with this micro format in and indexes question and answer pairs rather than whole text pages.

Is this a good idea? Is it worth progressing? Has it already been discussed?
