”standard output formats such as RSS… …(and plain HTML, of course)”

From now on I am framing all web standards-type discussions with the question “what is it reasonable to demand that authors do”

It is reasonable to require authors to publish HTML. It is reasonable to require authors to add some simple microformats like rel-author, h-entry or h-card.

#microformats2 wild examples list growing quickly, will your site be the next? microformats.org/wiki/microformats2#Examples_in_the_wild
I’m thinking the time might have come to write a wrapper around #php DOMDocument which actually makes it usable. Thoughts:
querySelectorAllare implemented for both the document and individual elements via Symfony XPath → CSS converter and relative XPath queries
.h-entryis better off where you’ve got
.idno-entryso then the author
.h-cardcan be scoped into the entry
.h-entryto explicitly declare authorship
.h-as-*on the same element as
.u-urlwhere you currently have
@thatemil I’ve always considered style guides/pattern libraries to be unit tests for HTML+CSS, and you could automate them with JS if they get too unwieldy.
thatEmil i have heard html is important for that web thing
If you want to generate real PDFs from HTML (i.e. with page breaks and real text, not just vast screenshots inside a PDF) then wkpdf is the way to go. Super fast, installs easily, great output.
