File Format
Name h-feed

h-feed (which, along with h-entry is the microformats2 update of the former hAtom) is a draft standard intended to be one of several "microformats" released via the microformats.org site and community, intended for the representation of information in a manner that is human-readable but can still be processed by machines.

The format encodes a subset of the Atom feed standard in the form of a standardized set of elements, attributes, and classes in HTML or XML. Thus, it can be embedded in web pages and be readable this way (and styled via CSS), but has a standardized structure that can easily be converted mechanically to other formats as needed for machine processing.

It is intended particularly for use in blog entries to provide metadata which might be useful in generating feeds, as a series of datestamped entries which are encoded in h-entry format.
