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.

I have just updated my pages on my blog with some hCard information. If you don't know what hCard is, it is microformat that enables machines to easily read contact information about me whilst also being visible to the readers of my page.

The microformat page explains things better than I can:

hCard is a simple, open, distributed contact information format for people, companies, and organizations, which is suitable for embedding in (X)HTML, Atom, RSS, and arbitrary XML. hCard is a 1:1 representation of the vCard standard (RFC2426 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2426.txt)) in XHTML, one of several open microformat standards.

I am not sure if I have this completly correct, I have used DIV's where I might have had to use spans. If it is that strict in the format I think it is a little bbit silly.

If you want to create an hCard readable bit of XHTML try this tool http://microformats.org/code/hcard/creator

I top have updated my site with hCard. I think that div is ok, I think that the class of an object is what is being searched for.

http://2advent.com:81/ I added the hCard microformat.
