RDF2Microdata Converter

What is it?

This tool converts RDF/XML (in the future also N3) content into Microdata snippets that can be easily pasted into existing XHTML Web pages. This is a very convenient way of providing GoodRelations-based e-commerce descriptions into RDF-aware search engines, namely Google.

This directly returns an Microdata snippet, representing the submitted RDF content as a block div elements with visible content. This can be pasted easily in any XHTML document.
