Although the technologies of the semantic web have long been at the mature level, the adoption of the semantic web has been slow. For there to be a reason for development of semantic web services there needs to exist a lot of semantic data that those services could use. Creating semantic data by means of automatic extracion and processing of existing data on the web is the first step that is mature enough. Second step is to provide the tools, for regular users who create most of the content on the web, for easy creation of the semantic data. In this paper, we have developed and presented a tool for visual semantic annotation of web pages using microdata format. This tool is a plugin for TinyMCE rich-text editor so it can be used in a variety of content management systems (CMS).
