--- there is a wiki page somewhere (which i can't find at the moment),
but there are a few options. HTML has the <address> element to
describe the contact info of the page owner. There are issues with
<address> due to it being an inline element, and not accepting
block-level inside it.

Also, the hResume microformat makes use of class="contact"  to help
describe which hcard to use. I would recommend using one of those
options and seeing if that works in your markup.

If i or someone finds that wiki page, please add your thoughts and
experiences to it as well.
