Hi All,

I am (finally) working on use cases for Behavioral Adaptional Content. There is much to discuss in the category of what I'll call displayed metadata. This is information about the content, but it is also information that should be displayed to the user.  We encounter this at the publication level, the sub-publication (chapter or article) level, and at a more granular level in some cases.

Is there a way to render information like this if it has been captured as <meta>, RDF, or microdata? More examples?

Example 1
Chapter Number + Chapter Title + Subtitle:
<h1><span class="chapterNumber">Chapter X </span>
<span class="chapterTitle">Chapter Title: </span>
<span class="chapterSubTitle">Subtitle</span></h1>

This is one of many ways to mark up the information. One could also use <h2> and <h3> for the Chapter Title and Subtitle, but the rest of the chapter with its many levels of headings remains to be marked up. In XML models I have seen this called <titleGroup>.

Example 2
Media Review: A journal article is a review of external media, such as a book. The metadata for the reviewed media must be included so the user knows what is reviewed. Ideally, this should be linked data, but that aside, how do we accomplish this semantically?
Currently this is often done using <p>s, <div>s and <span>s with classes, such as <p class="MediaReviewAuthor">  and the like. In some cases, a DOI is included. This offers display, but little else.

I will add these as use cases over the weekend. Any thoughts?
