[uf-discuss] hCard and "ATTN" text?

Hello Andy,

That kind of gets at my confusion.

Frances' suggestion of marking up the name "Joe Blow" with the "fn"
seem technically correct... but from-my-point of view it seems wrong.

To me, I think of this as an address for "MyCompany Inc."... and NOT
"Joe Blow"... which is why I want to give "MyCompany Inc." the "fn"
(and NOT "Joe Blow").

The "Joe Blow" part seems secondary.  It's almost like a "extension"
on a phone number.

Maybe this is an issue with the current hCard spec.

Perhaps we need a new class for this.  Perhaps "attn" or something like that.

See ya
