Hi Tim,

Thanks for adding the hCard example.

I took a quick look, and fixed a couple of things (note that in your markup
the fn appears to contain the entire address which is not what you intended
I think.

In addition, as this is an extended organization and department example, I
figured it deserved its own section with a bit more explanation.


Thanks again,
