I’m probably sounding stupid here, but uhm I don’t understand this Microformats concept at all.

What I don’t understand is,

1. what do you do with it? specifically by just adding css classnames as a form of tagging?

2.How is it used is a real world scenario, anyone has an example to enlighten my blurred view?

Example: (using square ”[ ]” brackets for pointy ones)

[div id=”contacts”]

  [span class=”full_name”]

    Joe Raindeer

  [/span]

  [span class=”full_name”]

    Jane Millenium

  [/span]

[/div]

Was that microformats??

Thanks!
