Getting my feet wet with microformats
Last Friday I finally signed up for the microformats mailinglist, and it appears that my idea of an XPN has fallen quite good. Unknown to me, there were already some small discussions about a similar idea, but no concrete plans, yet.

That is where I could use your help. Please let me know how you code your portfolio/client list currently, and I’ll be able to add it to the wiki, so we can somewhat standardize it.
I would really like this to get off of the ground, but I can’t do it by myself, so if you could help out, please do. I’ll owe you one. :)
