Excellent - many thanks.
Out of interest, do you think that a generic microformats parser _can_
(e.g. something that could parse hcard, hcal et al out of xhtml without
prior knowledge of their precise schemas?)
I ask because we're starting to wonder about embedding our own internal
microformats into webapps at work (e.g. maybe for financial reference
data), but we'd want to be able to use off-the-shelf generic tools to
parse, aggregate and query the custom data.
