Hi all,

I am pleased to announce the first version of HTML5 microdata[1] C library.
It is currently implemented under GitHub repository
https://github.com/shishimaru/libcsem

* Functionalities:

  - Light weight streaming parser
    - Parse chunked html and microdata events are passed via callback 
handlers
    - Applications can reduce the memory foot print because it don't create
      huge HTML tree internally

  - Data model builder
    - Create a microdata model based on the underlying streaming parser 
result
    - All microdata can be accessed via API

  - HTML5 microdata API

* How to build binary:

  1. Install libxml because the streaming parser works on libxml HTMLparser

  2. Execute configure script
     $ ./configure

  3. Build library
     $ make

* How to serialize API specification:

  1. Install doxygen

  2. Execute doxygen command under $LIBRARY_ROOT/csem
     $ doxygen

  3. API specification is serialized under $LIBRARY_ROOT/doc as both 
html and man

* Sample programs

  - Examples for each module can be found in 
$LIBRARY_ROOT/examples/microdata

* Code quality

  - Tested with microdata examples of scheme.org and W3C spec
  - No memory leak with valgrind
  - Nice code coverage

* License
