I came up with this format, using the microformats class names and
titles, for pages that are computer-generated:

Monday, January 5, 2008, 10:00pm<span class="dtstart" style="display:
none" title="2008-01-05T22:00:00-0800"></span>

This would hide the computer data from screen readers but make in
available in the DOM.

The issue remains for pages edited by non-technical humans.

Hope this helps,
