    XHTML - ItemProp

    From what I understand, the itemprop attribute is not available in XHTML Strict. However, I have read that using microdata help browsers and can possibly help with SEO.

    What is y'all's take on if I were to have a perfectly validated XHTML document with the exception of using microdata? Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages or vice-versa?

    You could use RDFa which, I’ve read, is treated equally to microdata.

    Sorry for the late reply.

    I have never heard about RDFa before. After reading some documentation on it, RDFa seems to be not only recommended by the W3C but it also supports more features than microdata such as multiple vocabularies and reverse properties.

    Long story short, it looks like I'm going with RDFa.
