There is also a pure DOM Javascript version by Jeremy Keith here: (you
can view source to see how it works) It used hCards/hCalendar and GEO
to mash-up google maps.

As for my geo service (http://suda.co.uk/projects/microformats/geo/)
that uses an XSLT to convert the HTML into a KML/GeoRSS file which be
loaded into supported mapping applications.

I hope this helps get you started. If/when you have a URL please share
it with the list and we can give you some feedback. And be sure to add
it to the wiki under geo implementations.
