Andy, Dmitry,

Thanks VERY MUCH for this feedback, this is exactly the kind of bugs,
suggested fixes, and feature requests that are helpful.

I have just did a tiny bit of references/relatedpages cleanup on hCard and
hCalendar and have linked to a couple of pages on the wiki which can be used
to gather feedback persistently (and +1 other folks' suggestions)


Specifics below...

According to whom?  I've never heard this, and if you could cite a WCAG or
Section 508 reference for this it would be appreciated.

My suggestion would be to change it to "font-size:smaller".

Just delete it from the code when you copy and paste it.

This is worthy of discussion.  I think it's a feature that allow HTML tags
to be included.

Reasonable feature requests to be sure, though I'm a bit wary of how big
these requests may become when you take into account all the locale-specific
date and time formats.

Please add to http://microformats.org/wiki/hcard-creator-feedback and note
version of Safari you are using.

That's definitely a bug.  Please add that too.

Good questions.  Wanna create the hreview-creator-feedback page based on one
of the others and add to it?
