A couple of weeks ago you all helped me out with marking up an hCard for an organization. I've gone with [*]:

<div class="vcard">
 <div class="org fn">
     <div class="organization-name">Sprinkler Fitters U.A. Local 483</div>
  <div class="adr">
      <div class="extended-address">Apprenticeship Training Center</div>
   <div class="street-address">2531 Barrington Court</div>
   <span class="locality">Hayward</span>, 
   <abbr title="California" class="region">CA</abbr>
   <span class="postal-code">94545</span>

Another possibility was to mark up Apprenticeship Training Center as an organization unit:
<div class="organization-unit">Apprenticeship Training Center</div>.

However, Brian expressed a caveat:

"Neither the apple address book nor the windows address book have
street-address, extended-address, or POBox broken out to their own
fields, so you might just want to experiment what happens to
'extended-address' on an import and please document it on the wiki[2]

I just checked into it, but before I update anything on the implementations page, I'd like some other verification.

I've got Outlook 2000 and It imports the "extended-address" version just fine. However, if I changed the markup to "organization-unit" Outlook does not grab that part of the address.

I've placed the two test cases online:

Please take a look and let us know the results.
