In this Wrox Blox, you learn how to create a custom button to generate a special HTML hyperlink. The hyperlink contains extra information to show the relationship between two individuals. This type of data is called the XHTML Friends Network (XFN), a specific type of microformat. A microformat is a Web-based formatting approach that aims to use existing XHTML tools (such as element attributes and classes) to describe data, not just to supply visual formatting. The SharePoint 3.0 platform was built with extensibility in mind; developers are free to take what is provided out-of-the-box and create custom solutions.
This capability enables developers to create incredibly robust solutions for specific business needs. One such area is the HTML Editor Field Control content authors use in Office SharePoint Server 2007 Publishing sites to create and edit the content. Developers and designers are free to enable or disable certain buttons on the field control to exert a certain level of control over the content authors. In addition, developers can create custom buttons.
