The team at classified search engine Oodle have just proposed a new microformat for classified ads.

A few people (myself, Rohit Khare, Assaf Arikin) recently proposed a microformat called hListing that would faciliate this. Microformats are a set of simple open data format standards used to implement structured blogging or web microcontent publishing. Part of the idea behind microformats is to “pave cowpaths” – i.e., “standardize and codify emergent, popular behavior on the Web.”

You can see their full proposal here.
