      Description

      There is now a more-or-less final Microdata to RDF algorithm published[1] which is different than the one in the current, official HTML5 draft [2] (that Ian Hickson has publicly revoked). However, Any23s extractor uses the old scheme according to a comment in its source code, which refers to [2]. However, this is exactly the algorithm that Ian Hickson rescinded at some point. Unfortunately, the official working drafts have not been updated for a very long time, but if you look at the editor's draft [3], you will see that that section has been entirely removed. Instead, there was a Semantic Web Interest group task force that discussed the issues, and [1] is the result of this discussion. It would be nice if this would be reflected in Any23 in the future.
