I know it defeats the object semantically speaking but what are the
other arguments against putting the machine-readable date/time in the
class attribute and do they outweigh the gain in accessibility?
For example, what's wrong with this:
<abbr class="dtstart:2007-12-12T16:03:00Z" title="3 minutes past 4pm, 12th December 2007">
Since no solution is ideal with the current HTML flavours people use is
there any work being done with regard to the new HTML specs like HTML5?
A <DATE> element or data="" attribute for example?
