First I would just I like to say great job on Rich Snippets it is a big
step forward for the semantic web.
A while back I started building a test-suite for testing microformats
parsers. You may find it useful - http://ufxtract.com/testsuite/. When
are viewing a test-fixture page like
http://ufxtract.com/testsuite/hcard/hcard1.htm press alt-x to get the
test runner. The link to UfXtract parser API (my own) is broken at the
moment so it is incorrectly showing fail on everything.
I had a quick look through the hCard tests to get a feel of where you're
at. Hopefully the notes I made below are useful.
hCard 1 [http://ufxtract.com/testsuite/hcard/hcard1.htm]
The vcard.n is not correctly supporting the Implied "n" Optimization
Returns vcard.role, but is not mark as a support property in
Returns vcard.uid, but is not mark as a support property in
Returns vcard.n, but is not mark as a support property in
The vcard.email property is displayed but returns no value
Returns vcard.tel, but is not mark as a support property in
Returns vcard.email incorrectly and it is not mark as a support
property in documentation
Returns vcard.urls, but is not mark as a support property in
Returns vcard.category, but is not mark as a support property in
The vcard.adr.post-office-box property returns no value
The vcard.adr.extended-address property returns no value
hCard.n.honorific-prefix property is displayed but returns no
Fails all 6 test on vcard.email.value and vcard.email.type
The vcard.tel.type property is not support even though the tel
It hard to tell which of these failed because of the order in which
the results are display does not match the page order.
Fails all 4 test using table header includes
Fails all 3 test using hyperlink include
Fails all 6 test for opaque/embedded hCards
I like the error massaging you add to the Rich Snippets Testing Tool, I
have found a number of places where the tests need fn properties.
If you have any question please feel free to contact me. If we continue
this on the list, it may be better to move it over the dev list.
PS - Yes Tantek, I will add this to the wiki later and email the list
back with a URL :-)
