[uf-discuss] Extracting N from hCard (was: Citation Straw Proposal

I added this to the Straw Proposals section of the Wiki, but I'm
wondering if we need to create a general name microformat for use
across formats. The problem with citations and author names is that
we have to do:
<span class="title">The Book of Ryan</span>
<span class="author-name vcard">
<span class="fn">Ryan Cannon</span>
Adding extra markup.
I see two solutions to this:
- Extracting N/FN properties into their own microformat
- Creating an implied optimization, such that if a vCard contains
no other properties,
it implies "fn" to all text within.
I like the second solution better.
