Monday, August 04, 2008

"Expressing Dublin Core metadata using HTML/XHTML meta and link elements" by Pete Johnston and Andy Powell has been published as a DCMI Recommendation. A related document, "Notes on DCMI specifications for Dublin Core metadata in HTML/XHTML meta and link elements", provides a guide to implementers to the differences between the HTML/XHTML meta data profile provided by the 2008 Recommendation and that of a previous Recommendation of November 2003. The Recommendation supports the W3C specification Gleaning Resource Descriptions from Dialects of Languages (GRDDL) in the form of an XSLT transform for extracting RDF triples from instances of Dublin Core metadata in HTML/XHTML.
