Short for Simple HTML Ontology Extension, SHOE is an XML-compatible extension to HTML that enables Web authors to annotate their Web documents semantically with machine-readable knowledge. SHOE is designed to make it possible for robots and other Web-agents to gather meaningful information about Web pages and documents. It was developed by the Parallel Understanding Systems Group at the University of Maryland at College Park.
