You don't need to partition names, I believe the minimal hCard is
something like:

<div class="vcard"><div class="fn">Ciaran McNulty</div></div>

(It may be possible to do without the inner DIV and apply the fn to
the outer one, I'm not 100% clear on whether the fn has to be on a
child element of the vcard).
