Microformats and accessibility

I’ve long been worried about the accessibility of microformats, so experimented and found that the way that dates are marked up is inaccessible to users of the big two screenreaders, and began writing an article to that effect.

James Craig, who is 97 times more helpful than I am, decided to research a better way to embed machine-parsable dates in content.

We jointly wrote up our results in an article called “hAccessibility“, which James published today.

Comment there, please.
