Hi all, I've put together a quick-and-dirty demo for using Simile 
Timeline [1] with a list of hCal events:


I dug through the uf-discuss archives and didn't come across too much 
talk of doing this. Simile Timeline is listed on the History Examples 
page under Tools [2].

Either way, it's not completely bulletproof (yet), but it proves that 
Simile Timeline can be used with microformats in an accessible manner 
(out of the box, viewing a Simile Timeline page w/o Javascript gives you 
no content). I've got a ways to go with it (importing icons, photos, 
etc.), but wanted to get community feedback on the work so far.
