I've been searching for any information about the degree to which  
search engines currently take advantage of Microformats for indexing  
Can anyone tell me:

• When crawling pages, do Google, Yahoo!, or MSN recognize hCard,  
hCalendar, or other Microformats, and if so, do they do anything with  
them (populate local search indexes, shared events calendars, etc.)
• I know that Yahoo! publishes a huge volume of content in  
Microformats, but do Google or MSN as well?
• Are any employees of the major search companies contributing to  
Microformat initiatives?

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.
