⇒ Green Turtle - Injection and Microdata Options
I've just released version 1.2 of [Green Turtle](https://code.google.com/p/green-turtle/) and its [Chrome extension](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/green-turtle-rdfa/loggcajcfkpdeoaeihclldihfefijjam) . While there are minor bug fixes, there are three new features:
⇒ Problems with Microdata
Given my recent grumbling about Google Blink developers trying to [remove XSLT](https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!topic/blink-dev/zIg2KC7PyH0) from Chrome, the current state of Microdata vs [RDFa](http://www.w3.org/TR/rdfa-core/) makes me think we're creating another level of incompatibilities on the Web. XSLT generally failed client-side on the Web due to the poor implementation within the various browsers. At this point, of course people aren't using it en masse because it just didn't work.
⇒ Microdata in Green Turtle
After being asked how hard it would be to add [Microdata](http://dev.w3.org/html5/md-LC/) , at least in some minimal way, to [Green Turtle](https://code.google.com/p/green-turtle/) I decided to find out. Since I already have a bunch of infrastructure, this didn't feel like a hard thing to add. If I did add support, at least experimentally, microdata and RDFa could use the same API and scripting support.
