[uf-discuss] hcard name/fn question

Hi all,

Just got a question about the "n" and "fn" hcard properties.

If a number of sub-properties are specified within n, do these all have to be included in fn?

For example, if I had something like:


family-name: Cox
given-name: Rebecca
additional-name: Laura
honorific-prefix: Ms

Would I be able to specify fn as follows:

Fn: Rebecca Cox


I ask because we may want to label the fn field as "the way you want your name to appear" for example in a sign-up form for users. This may not be appropriate if its not the right way to use the property.
