Purpose[edit]

For use on List of Presidents of the United States.

Erik Möller, Deputy Director of the Wikimedia Foundation, spoke recently, in an article called Wikipedia to Add Meaning to Its Pages, about "making some of the data on Wikipedia's 15 million (and counting) articles understandable to computers as well as humans". The article referred, in particular, to "allow[ing] software to know, for example, that the numbers shown in one of the columns in this table listing U.S. presidents are dates". This template makes each row "understandable to computers", by emitting an hCalendar, or event, microformat for the presidency, with an hCard, or person, microformat for the president.

Usage[edit]

  • presd-link = Name of page about presidency, without square brackets
