Thought will need to be given to how that is transferred to off-world
locations. This may mean requiring separate lat & long markup for such
places, or the use of type-value pairs:

        <span class="geo">
          <span class="type">Moon</span>
          <span class="value">12.345;01.987"</span>

otherwise an additional class, say, "coordinates":

        <span class="geo">
          <span class="body">Moon</span>
          <span class="coordiantes">12.345;01.987"</span>
