  Could anyone provide an answer to the following:
   Google recently updated their search engine and now treat text that is hidden through CSS as spam. 
   How  would this effect the implementation of microformats in relation to  SEO? Is the microformat standard open to abuse from spammers? And do  the likes of Google, Yahoo and MSN currently recognise microformats as  a standard for the presentation of data?
  Thanks a lot,
