Brian, I think is a very important clarification that may not be obvious to everyone from reading the hCard/vCard docs. Could you add your answer and explanation to the hCard FAQ?

<span class="fn n"><span class="additional-name">D.</span> <span
class="given-name">Carlos</span> <span class="family-name">Santana

Because N has several sub-properties, you can order those in any way
that you want. FN will take the string as they are ordered in the
HTML, but N will re-order them as needed.

The same applies to addresses as well.
