I have been looking at HTML5 Microdata  implementation in Webkit.

Microdata is a specification used to nest semantics within existing content
on web pages. Search engines, web crawlers, and browsers can extract and
process Microdata from a web page and use it to provide a richer browsing
experience for users. Microdata helps technologies such as search engines
and web crawlers better understand what information is contained in a web
page, providing better search results.
Here is the spec :

I have logged a bug for this and also attached a basic implementation patch
for the same.

Master bug: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=68609

Please let me know your suggestions/views regarding this.

Thanks in advance.
