Dear WG Members,

Thanks for Teleconference of this week, It's my second teleconference
in my life and a great experience.

I'm working hard to gain all information on GRDDL available in order
to comment and help in the developing of documentation. Well, I
"gleaned" web, more home pages (like Dan's [1] and Ian's [2] home
pages) and works of Danny like hDOAP [3]. So, excluding RDFa [4] (that
approach can be similar to eRDF). On the Primer [5],  there are to
main ways to include in a Semantic layer on a XHTML document, in order
to extract it via GRDDL. The peculiarity and power of GRDDL is to use
(without data replications) information that are both Human and
Machines readable.

I'm talking about Microformats [6] and eRDF [7]. And the Question
is... what is the best way to include the Semantic Layer?

So, I'm testing for Microformats on my home page and it's more simple
to implement and most diffused (especially for blogs). I'm also
reading about eRDF (I'll implement soon) and code remain cleaned and
clear. In particular when applied to a huge number of dialects.

Third way is to adopt personal transformation and personal rules for
embedding semantics but I try to exlude this except cases in which
existing application is simply transformed via XSLT.

In which case is better to use eRDF than Microformats and vice versa?

Thanks for attention, first of next teleconference I'll send my little
"official" presentation.

Best Regards and Happy Week End,

Simone Onofri
