Good catch Scott.  And thanks to Michael for coming up with a "real world
example" using the AREA element to capture a property of an hCard


I also noticed that you are putting the person's name (fn) in the 'alt'
attribute in those AREA elements.

This makes me think that for non-URL/email properties, <area alt> should be
treated like <img alt>.

I just checked the spec (HTML4.01), and I agree with Scott's conclusion.

I'll go ahead and add these to hcard-parsing.
