This has come up in several of our meetings and a lot of googling for
answers has been going on, but to very little avail. All of our
customers want the facebook open graph protocol (
<https://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraph/> ) implemented on their
pages, but we need to serve our pages as text/html for browser
compatibility, and neither xmlns-declarations or tags will validate.
If you include <meta property="og:something" value="..." /> objects,
they do work on facebook, (served as text/html, with or without the
namespace declarations) But I'd really like for someone to comment on if
there is a correct/verified way versus what is "current best practices".
