I've been working with Great Circle Mapper to add hCard and geo
microformats to their website. This has been done; for example on:
and they've come up with this way of working-around recent concerns
about mis-use of "abbr":
<span class="smaller geo">
<abbr class="latitude" title="52.453856"></abbr>52^27'14"N
<abbr class="longitude" title="-1.748028"></abbr>01^44'53"W
(degree symbols replaced with ASCII "^")
I admire the lateral thinking, but I wonder if this is any better, from
the PoV of people using assistive technology? If it is, it would seem to
provide a simple work-around to recent concerns.
