I removed the tag; I don't see anything sufficent to merit it. Tearlach 19:35, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

Namespace[edit]

As this article deals mainly with the usage of Geo microformat in Wikipedia, shouldn't it be part of the Wikipedia: namespace? – Tivedshambo (talk) 14:54, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

It does? — Omegatron 16:47, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
Quite. It's not about its use in Wikipedia alone, but about its generic use in (X)HTML. Tearlach 17:13, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
That's how it reads to me: e.g. If latitude is present, so MUST be longitude, and vice versa.. If this isn't a WP instruction then I apologise. However, bear in mind Wikipedia is not an instruction manual, – Tivedshambo (talk) 17:37, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
WP:NOT#IINFO - maybe, but that rule is really aimed at detailed instructions, like how to bake a cake. In this case it's just a stringent definition of a format, which is no more instruction than, say, the definitions of trig functions . Tearlach 18:41, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
Of course it doesn't. Andy Mabbett 18:16, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
