Thank you for the suggestions and examples. That's very helpful.

Does anyone know how well these are handled by 
current software? i.e. will anything that tries 
to read multi-author hAtoms, or hCard with agents:

    a. Degrade gracefully, or
    b. Ignore loftily, or
    c. Fail catastrophically?

Incidentally, with regard to hAtom use, would you 
recommend making each journal an individual 
hFeed, with the articles represented by an hEntry 
... or should the page as a whole be an hFeed, 
with each journal edition being an hEntry?
