That makes sense.  But if I am on the page that is hosting my hCard, how
do I indicate that this URL is the URI for the hCard?

Wouldn't you just use a <span
class="url">http://www.switchbook.com</span> instead of an <a>?

That would still get picked up by the parsers as self-referential,
wouldn't it?
