Thanks all for your response to this question some of it was quite 
surprising particularly Tobys, "H" is for Horatio from CSI , I have 
never heard of that great stuff.

A quick recap "h" in microformats means:

1 "the HTML version of" or just HTML
2 The Greek letter micro μ (Mu) inverted
3 In hAtom, it the Irish pronunciation of "h" next to a vowel which is 
softly spoken with a strong spoken "A" as in "hay" (is this correct David?)
4 The "H" from Horatio Cain

Thanks again
