Furthermore, we provide an easy-way to move microformat data to RDF, showing
that "microformats" and the Semantic Web are not incompatible at all, but
that using GRDDL microformats can be shown to be expressing Semantic Web
data. With enough work and support in making GRDDL transformations and
placing them in profile URIs of microformats, the Semantic Web can begin
immediately to deploy large amounts of data. Furthermore, it provides an
easy way to move XML data to RDF, and we hope more people make GRDDL
transformations from popular XML dialects.
