Hey Kevin and Mark,

Thanks for the links. They help a bit. But I'm still a bit confused by
this example:

<dl class="profile">
 <dt id="rel">rel</dt>
   <a rel="help"
     HTML4 definition of the 'rel' attribute.</a>
   Here is an additional value.</p>
   <dt id="tag">tag</dt>
   <dd>Indicates that the referred resource serves as a "tag",
       or keyword/subject, for the referring page.</dd>

Perhaps if I saw a completed "microformatted" document, with the profile
defined within the "head" element, I could understand better:


Could you please point me to some of these? (I assume there are many)
