Of course, it could be argued that the latter constitutes invisible

If example.com/Fred has:

        <span class="vcard">
          <span class="fn">Fred<\span>
          <img class="logo">Fred-avatar.png</img>

then compare, on another site:

        <span class="vcard">
          <a class="fn url" href="http://example.com/Fred">Fred<\a>


        <a class="pavatar"
        href="http://example.com/Fred-avatar.png">Fred's avatr<\a>
