In considering how we're going to add Access For All metadata to OERs authored using the OER Commons authoring tool, I've taken a look at microformats and microdata. I've drafted wiki pages describing how these two options might be used: microdata:


The microformat option looks tidier and simpler on the surface (it's strictly classnames added to HTML elements, whereas the approach requires additional markup), but on closer examination I think the approach provides a better solution (notes on the wiki pages should help elaborate on why). I look forward to hearing other thoughts.

These are just drafts, and I would really love it if we could pick this apart and revise and refine.
