The latent OpenURL idea has cystallized as COinS 1.0. The major change from earlier proposals is to hide the latent OpenURL in the title attribute of a span tag, rather than in the href of an anchor tag. Accordingly, I’ve updated the little Wordpress plug-in I wrote to insert OpenURLs in Wordpress postings. A sample link follows: [] (as before, you won’t see anything between the square brackets unless you have an activator). The plugin inserts a comment in the span tag containing a link to the spec. Download the new version here. It’s still a minimal implementation of OpenURL 1.0, but it’s a start.
