One of the use cases I collected from the e-mails sent in over the past
few months was the following:
USE CASE: Remove the need for feeds to restate the content of HTML pages
(i.e. replace Atom with HTML).
* Paul maintains a blog and wishes to write his blog in such a way that
tools can pick up his blog post tags, authors, titles, and his
blogroll directly from his blog, so that he does not need to maintain
a parallel version of his data in a "structured format." In other
words, his HTML blog should be usable as its own structured feed.
* Parsing rules should be unambiguous.
* Should not require changes to HTML5 parsing rules.
I've attempted a first cut at the above here:
It doesn't collect the blogroll or the blog post tags yet, mostly because
I'm not sure how to do that. Any suggestions of improvements are naturally
