Resource Description Framework (RDF) has evolved into increasingly pragmatic formats over time. RDF annotation (RDFa) has been particularly successful as a system for annotating HTML documents inline on the web. It is supported by Google and other search engines in the form of Rich Snippets. The emergence of microdata and the initiative applied pressure to simplify RDFa even further. The W3C took action and produced a radically simplified version: RDFa 1.1 Lite. In this article, learn about RDFa Lite, and get a head start on producing and processing the shape of Rich Snippets to come.
