Hello uF list!
I've got some questions on hCards used to represent a company...
Nothing here should be constituted as a request for a new uF;
I've read the hCard and vCard specs;
I know about paving the cowpath, 80:20 and POSH;
I've Googled as much as I can..
- I would like a person hCard to have a pointer to the hCard of the
company they work for in the 'org' bit: can I include or link to the
company hCard? I can imagine separate company hCards for the main
company and the specific 'organisation-unit' within it.
- I would like my company hCards, conversely, to contain a list of
[role->hCard] links - e.g. CEO: [link to CEO's hCard]; CIO: [link to
CIO's hCard] - I know 'agent' exists, but this is different, and not in
the hCard spec itself.
- I would like to have a full, official registered company name in a
company hCard that differs from the public, friendly name - the spec
says 'n' should be blank for company/organisation hCards, so where can
the official name go? (the spec forces 'org' to be the same as the
friendly name, of course) should I use fn/nickname resp? or abbr?
- I would like to drop in a field for the ticker code: NASDAQ:MSFT, etc;
also the SEDOL and ISIN codes. Similarly a field for sector, UK
Companies House classification, etc. Shall I just go POSH, here? Use
rel-tag? Any suggestions or precedents?
The Financial Times Group (UK) <-- now you can see why I'm asking! =0)
