Entry Is Labelled

University's Directory Uses hcard

Microformats (ab)used:

The output from Person Finder, the University of Bath's staff and student directory is now marked up with hCard. For example, check out my entry. The amount of information available to people accessing the service from within the University's network is far greater, and that is also all marked up appropriately. I think that's at least 12,000 new hCards.

I realise that I've forgotten to define the profile on the head, but I'll fix that later, and the data is still usable via the usual Greasemonkey scripts, XSLT and bookmarklets.

Consider this my 0.1 degrees Centrigade contribution to that ocean boiling ;)
