Hi Roger,

This is a nice step by step tutorial presentation.

One critique is that the first couple of examples with Dr. John Q. Public
are invalid hCard because you cannot *only* use "fn" with a formatted name
that is more than two words - you *must* also use "n" and its subproperties.

See: http://microformats.org/wiki/hcard#Implied_.22n.22_Optimization

Consider changing your first and second examples to only state "John Public"
and therefore able to use the implied N optimization rule.  This way you
introduce people to the common easy case first, and then show the more
detailed example with "n" and subproperties later.
