Mark, this is great news! And every real world example use of a
microformat certainly helps both demonstrate its usefulness, and
discover the challenges encountered when a draft proposal is
implemented with real content.

Please feel free to add your experiences here:


by either adding to existing issues, or opening new issues for any
problems you encountered.

I'll also add my thanks to Thomas and everyone else who has
contributed to hRecipe.

This too is great news. I noticed that the reviews of recipes are also
marked up with hReview (and reviewers with hCard).

I have added Foodnetwork.com to the list of recipe sites "in the wild"
that support hRecipe:


Thanks again for your excellent work Mark!
