Microformat[edit]

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the organisation's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue article across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a reader, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates[edit]

  • If the organisation has an "established", "founded", "opened" or similar date, use {{start date}} (unless the date is before 1583 CE).
  • If the organisation has a URL, use {{URL}}.
  • If the organisation has a "coordinates" field, use {{coord}} to include a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes[edit]

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • country-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • geo
  • label
  • latitude
  • locality
  • longitude
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • url
  • vcard

Please do not rename or remove these classes; nor collapse nested elements which use them.
