[microformats-discuss] microformat-find (greasemonkey): hcalendar

I've made a few changes to the "microformat-find" Greasemonkey script 
(which I really encourage you all to try if you haven't already to see 
what I'm on about). I've fixed up some bugs dealing with long text lines 
and add a "hcalendar/vcalendar" parser.

The microformat-find script is available here:

In my opinion, this is not quite as useful as some of the other 
microformat handlers, because almost all calendar providing apps also 
provide the underlying vcalendar data. I haven't been able to test this 
very well because I don't have a calendar app. I tried using "Mozilla 
Sunbird" but it doesn't seem to register for the MIME types.

To be done:
- it depends on the dates being correct in the "title" fields. Not a 
great idea.
- it should detect and use internal hcards to provide better address 
- it works at the "vevent" level, not at the "vcalendar" level -- it 
needs to work at both

URIs to try on:

... note "hcard" on the same page; we should use this better

... note the crappiness in the address ...

Regards, etc...
