Hi Folks,

Here is some HTML text that I want to markup using the hCard fn and n

         Today's speaker is Mr. John Q. Public, M.D.

I propose marking it up in this fashion:

Today's speaker is
<span class="vcard">
      <abbr class="fn" title="Mr. John Q. Public, M.D." /> 
      <span class="n">
            <span class="honorific-prefix">Mr.</span>
            <span class="given-name">John</span> 
            <abbr class="additional-name" title="Quinlin">Q.</abbr> 
            <span class="family-name">Public</span>, 
            <span class="honorific-suffix">M.D.</span>/> 

Notice that I am using an empty abbr element to store the value for fn.
Is this sensible?

Is there a better way to markup the HTML text?  

Is this Best Practice?
