I'm a bit confused by the goal.
I'm on site A. I want to use YQL to get the microformatted information from
site B. What can I do on site A with that data? Is that what you are asking?
Or site A has microformatted data, what can I use YQL to do with that data.
Here's an idea.
I have a web site: paris.insiderfood.com. I do a search for something like:
The results listed from http://parisvegetarian.com have microformatted
So, can I grab those hcard details and generate a link in the result that
pops up a yahoo map?
Here's another idea
I go to a blog that has a blogroll marked up in xfn. Could I use YQL to
follow those people and grab their information and create links to the
twitter, flickr, hcard, etc details?
This could be helpful as a firefox plugin to explore a blogger's contacts.
Does that help?

Subject: [uf-discuss] YQL now supports microformats as a data source
happy to announce that YQL now supports microformats as a data table.
This means you can get microformat data from web sites returned as JSON
or XML and you have a SQL-style language to filter and collate:
What I now need is some good examples, I thought of a script to allow
detection of hcard info to fill out forms automatically in straight
any other good ideas?
