Do you mean <http://www.wgs84.com/> which, helpfully, has as its total

        "This website is under review. Please return later" ?

That would give us, say:

        <span class="luna">
                <span class="geo">
                        <span class="latitude">37.386013</span>,
                        <span class="longitude">-122.082932</span>

which, indenting and returns aside, has an extra:

        <span class="luna"></span>

25 (=26-1) characters over:

        <span class="luna">
                <span class="latitude">37.386013</span>,
                <span class="longitude">-122.082932</span>

It is also non-sensical, since, as I said previously, "geo" refers to
"(planet) Earth".

What are the advantages of doing it that way?
