I’ve just released a plugin that adds a number of tags to aid in including properly marked up microformats in your page templates and posts.
Microformats, if you haven’t encountered them, are a collection of defined ways of using the XHTML tags and attributes you have always used in order to model data in a way that can be picked up and interpreted by a variety of tools (like saving vcards for importing them into other applications).
Tags included in the current version of this plugin:
All of these tags can be used in either templates (‘pages’), snippets (‘forms’) or in article bodies, but cannot be used in comments. Unless otherwise stated, all attributes for each tag have been shown in the example usage found in the documentation.

I just posted an update that includes some adming side popup tag helpers making this much more useful.
Now you don’t have to remember all the different properties you can use, just hit the familliar style link under ‘Useful Tags’ and fill out the information you want to include and hit build.
Also, still looking for feedback — right now I’m very curious about install issues as well as changes you might want to see in the markup used for each format.
I’m curious if anyone is using this?
I’m putting an update on my radar — fixing a bug or two and working on refining the tag editor UI a bit and was wondering if anyone had any input at this point.
I think I’ll pick this up and check it out.
I’ve been told this is the way to go, but I have yet to understand the full weight of microformats. I seem to recall some article or two about it over at hicksdesign, but I haven’t really owned it for my self yet?
I have been using it at my personal site. Good work on the uF mailing list, by the way.

I’ve just uploaded version 1.0 of this plugin… the key change being added support for the hReview microformat for posting reviews of events, businesses and products.
Aside from bug fixes or small usability related tweaks, this will be the last release until I can find time to work on enhancing textpattern’s built in tag builder and make some of the input forms more flexible.
As always feedback is appreciated!
I just stumbled upon this on textpattern.org. I am a big fan of the MF principles and look forward to implementing them in future sites! Thanks a lot for this plugin!!

This microformat plug-in is just what I was looking for today. I will test it in a minute :-)
If somebody is interested in getting some info about microformats … I have been writing two basic articles in the last two days for performancing.com.
Please excuse the self-promotion but I think it is topic relevant as many people don’t get the really nice and simple approach of microformats.
