Search monkey provides hcard and I believe hevent directly to the developer.
It's a great use of microformats.

Yahoo's search monkey allows you to style search output, but i don't
think the microformatted data is directly exposed.

"Microformat" as a verb or adjective, aka "microformatted content" or "can
you please Microformat that page with an hCard?"

microformats lower-case 'm' as well.

You might also consider adding that question to the FAQs page, then we
can all work on an answer together


or possibly start a new page

http://microformats.org/wiki/usage (maybe)?

to help describe how to, or how freely you can, and in what context
the term 'microformat' can be used.
