Do you have javascript disabled? In that case, yes the geo:lat and 
geo:long appear there in plain text by default. Otherwise, normal users 
never see them unless they bother to hit the "Show machine tags" 
link...and rightly so, as people who are not into code geekery, 
geocaching, or some other niche pursuit that will require them access to 
the actual raw lat/long data, will more likely want to see something 
like the map display.
