[uf-discuss] dtstamp in hCal

The other option is to double-up on the dtstart property.

Because dtstart is required you can easily do something like:

<abbr class="dtstart dtstamp" title="19970901T1300Z">September 1, 1997</abbr>

this works well when the dtstamp and the start are the same thing,
although it is not always true.

Since Outlook requires the DTSTAMP property, I have to include dtstamp in the hCal.  Some of the examples at http://microformats.org/wiki/hcalendar-brainstorming represent dtstamp like this:
> <abbr class="dtstamp" title="19970901T1300Z"></abbr>
