FHISO’s Technical Standing Committee is pleased to announce the first public draft of a new standard, Extended Legacy Format (ELF): Date, Age and Time Microformats, or ELF Dates for short. This draft defines microformats for representing dates, ages and times in arbitrary calendars together with how they are applied to the Gregorian, Julian, French Republican and Hebrew calendars in a GEDCOM-compatible manner. It is available as an HTML web page or as a PDF for download.
We welcome comments these, preferably to the tsc-public mailing list. A longer overview of this draft can be read in the the announcement email.
Merry Christmas from all at FHISO, and we wish you an enjoyable New Year.
