I was able to dig up some prior art on uri identification of ticker
symbols[1]. Alternatively, you might refer to a yahoo url for the ticker
symbol, or some other appropriate source. If worst comes to worst you
could always use the ticker symbol itself as the hReview item's fn,
however ideally you would also identify the marketplace the ticker
symbol is valid in.
