[uf-discuss] testing results - was hcard question

Thanks Tantek

I'm trying to fix a few microformat issues and I'm coming across some
problems confirming updates. I'm using the latest tails extension to see if
things are working and I'm not seeing some of my changes appear.

Here are some code snippets that I'm curious about.

Why isn't this appearing as a rating inside the hreview:

<span title="diane_marie_brown gave this product 5 out of 5 stars for
Overall quality" class="rating"><em class="value">5</em>/<em

I'm trying the latest version of the include pattern and I'm still not
seeing the product title appear in the reviews.  This is near the top of the

<h2 id="prodname" class="item fn">Apple iPod nano 2GB Black MP3 Player</h2>

And this is in the midst of each review:
<a href="#prodname" class="include microformatdetail"></a>

The CSS is display:none for .microformatdetail

Has this pattern been made official? Is it just that tails is not
recognizing it? Do I need to add the hreview class to the h2?

Finally, our reviews have a basic summary as well as pros and cons. When I
add class="description" to each of these, I only get the summary. Is there a
way to also display the pros and cons?

I appreciate any help. I plan on publishing a few blog posts about how we
are using these Microformats on tech soon. It would be nice to fix these
issues or at least understand why they don't work before hand.

The short answer is that vCard, and thus hCard, does not have typing/tagging
for the URL property at all, so the best you can do is to simply markup both
as class="url".
