Google — Google, Microsoft and Yahoo! Agree On Markup Vocabulary 192

aabelro writes "Google, Microsoft and Yahoo! have decided to propose a common markup vocabulary,, based on the Microdata format, simplifying the job of webmasters who want to give meaning to their web pages' content." Manu Sporny, chair of the W3C group that created RDFa, added his (personal) dissenting opinion about Schema, calling it a 'false choice,' and saying, "The entire Web community should decide which features should be supported – not just Microsoft or Google or Yahoo."
