[uf-discuss] simple rss question

I'm working on something that isn't ready for public use.
Here's a sample of the generated code:

<dl class="singleauth vcard">
<strong class="fn">Jane Doe</strong> - <span class="title">The Best of Foo
<dd class="expprofactions">
<a href="/" title="View more articles by Jane Doe, The Best of Foo Foo"
class="url"><img src="/images/janedoe.png" alt="Jane Doe" class="photo"></a>

<a href="/bio/janedoe.html" class="business">View Bio</a><a
href="http://add.my.yahoo.com/rss?url=foo.html" title="Add Jane Doe's
articles to your My Yahoo page"><img src="/images/icon-my-yahoo.gif" alt="My

<a href="/rss/janedoe" title="Subscribe to the RSS feed from Jane Doe, The
Best of Foo Foo" rel="alternate url" type="application/rss+xml"><img
src="/images/icon-rss.gif" alt="RSS"></a>

<dd class="latestheadline">
<a href="/" class="lhead">Headline</a>
<span class="meta">- </span><p>short summary of the main headline </p>

<dd class="otherheadline">
<a href="/ ">Another Headline</a>
<span class="meta"> - 2006-11-30 07:45:05</span>
<a href="/ ">Another Headline</a>
<span class="meta"> - 2006-11-29 07:05:09</span>
<dd class="microformatdetail org">Yahoo! Finance</dd>

You can see the link to the RSS feed near the middle of the definition link.
I noticed this doesn't trigger the auto-discovery for Firefox 1.6.

My class="microformatdetail" hides the information from the screen but
provides it to the browser with positioning.

I originally questioned how to markup the RSS link with microformats to work
with the hcard format. How does this look?

feel free to add it to the FAQ section if hCard, but what exactly was
your original question? and do you have a URL so it is easier to
discuss the mark-up options?
