[uf-dev] geo syntax details

I got curious about geo syntax tonight,
inspired by http://austin.adactio.com/ .

I think I found an X2V bug; if I run this
thru it:

  <li class="vevent">
    testing event
    <div class="vcard">
      <span class="geo">
	<span class="latitude">20</span>
	<span class="longitude">24</span>

I get a trailing semicolon:


My read of the spec is that's no good.

version info:

$ HEAD http://suda.co.uk/projects/X2V/xhtml2vcard.xsl

I would have thought that a trailing delimiter
is harmless, but I know I had to cut off a trailing ,
in BYDAY thusly in order to get Apple's iCal to grok:

  <em class="byday">
    <!-- cut off final , -->
    <xsl:value-of select="substring($byday, 1,
string-length($byday)-1)" />

I'd sure like to see more GEO examples in the specs;
I couldn't figure out how it was supposed to work from
the spec; I had to look at the X2V code.


I suppose I should add this to 
if not
