Schema.org strangeness

Schema.org strangeness

Soooo… A couple of weeks ago we took on a job which involved, among other aspects, setting up the site’s Schema microdata. Something odd happened…

While testing in several of the better test suites (including Googles microdata validation page), a bunch of the tags simply wouldn’t validate – even though they were definitely correct and valid and the nesting was done correctly.

The problem? The failing tags needed their property arguments to be *unquoted*. We pored over the code for hours to see if there was some reason for it, but came up with nothing.

Has anyone else experienced this? A lengthy Google search turned up nothing…
