Example text

Again, we’ve seen how microformats can directly enhance the meaning of already meaningful markup in order to improve the user experience. Picture perfect progressive enhancement! IT’S THE FOUNDATION While progressive enhancement is often discussed in terms of CSS and JavaScript, it applies equally to the markup. As we’ve seen in this chapter, every time we choose a meaningful element, we make it easier for the page to do its job by enhancing accessibility and increasing its visibility to potential users through organic search.

0 was an ambitious spec, introducing numerous tags and attributes. 2, but the class and id attributes survived. 0 have found their way back into the HTML lexicon, either formally as part of HTML5 or quasi-formally as microformats. [6] It’s worth noting that class and id each make a (very) brief appearance in the HTML 2 spec, but were not formally-defined attributes. They were simply used to demonstrate the fault tolerant way in which browsers should treat unknown attributes. [7] And the HTML 3 draft did allow for this use, among others.

In a similar sense, the content of our website should be able to be enjoyed without embellishment.
