Microformats are a simple, but genial and usefull idea.

The Idea is to use normal (X)HTML with standardize CSS class names. The class names are not just used for layout but add context information about the data they contains. This allows to simplay search through the page looking for a tag with a defined class name and parse this part of the HTML tree to get the information in a computer readable way.

See for further informations.
