It’s the classic metacrap problem: invisible metadata rots.
It’s one of the reasons why microformats always favoured marking up existing, visible (user-facing) data.

This is an interesting development though:
HTML -> accessible PDF as an archival workflow?
Did anyone spot the, um, deliberate mistake at the end of this week’s episode of the Clearleft podcast? Where I sent you to the wrong link for the design maturity survey?
It should be https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/designmaturity

Whoops! Thanks for spotting that—should be fixed now.

When I was a kid, I thought the word “character” started with a “chuh” sound (’cause, y’know that is how it’s spelled).
I also pronounced the “b” in the “subtle” …which wasn’t.
Reading a lot just leads to embarrassment.

“Nice veins!” I was told. I always get complimented on my veins and it always pleases me inordinately.

Seeing as Safari shows all the computed properties correctly, I’m guessing it was something that was introduced after the Webkit/Blink fork?
But weirdly, Firefox is showing the same behaviour as Chrome.
