Comment:
i'd like to encode a geographical position in the format like <span
itemprop=geo itemvalue="lat;lon">HUMAN-FRIENDLY- and LOCALIZED-LAT,
LON</span>, but current microdata syntax does not allow it.  <meta
itemprop=geo content=...> could be used, but container element is preferred
for the ease of scripting and styling.

you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please

title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue

   http://dev.w3.org/html5/decision-policy/decision-policy.html

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: For now, you can use
   <meta name="geo itemvalue="lat;lon">HUMAN-FRIENDLY- and LOCALIZED-LAT,LON
...but on the long run we might add some ways to do this. (There have been
other requests along similar lines for various types, e.g. ratings). I'd like
to wait until we have more experience with microdata before adding this,
though, so that we can do it right. Baby steps.
