With the added advantage of being supported by hCard:


However, according to my test case:


        <p class="vcard">
        The <span class="fn org">West Midland Bird Club telephone
        <a class="red tel" href="tel:+441283791171">01283 791171</a>,

it's not yet detected by:

        Operator (I've notified Mike Kaply)

        Almost Universal Microformat Parser


        Tails export

It is supported by:
