Used as a container element for metadata about a product (such as a book, software package, hardware component, website, etc.) that is being reviewed
For a detailed discussion on the use of <product>, see Tagging Book or Product Reviews.
A review of a book, journal, website, etc., should include as much information about the item being reviewed as is practical; for example, the running time of a film or the number of pages in a book (both of which would be tagged as <size>). See the tagged example below for more element uses.
This element (<product>) has been significantly remodeled in version 3.0 of the Tag Set. The values and/or usage in version 3.0 are not backward-compatible with that in previous versions of the Tag Set. Specifically, in prior versions the <product> element was allowed to contain the <page-count> element, now replaced by the <size> element.
