I was able to get Operator to acknowledge the microformat in your sample.

One thing that I did notice is that it didn't work until I corrected the
'fancy' quotes around your URL to simple 'straight' quotes. I don't know
if the 'fanciness'(i.e. typographic quotes with different characters for
close and open) was inserted by your email client or if it was present in
your original source-code, but it's something you might like to check.

By the way, my understanding is that setting 'display: none' on
microformatted data will probably be frowned on. I don't think it's the
cause of your problem (although I suppose an extension could assume that
'display: none' indicated that the author didn't want a piece of data to
be taken into account) but if my reading of:


is correct, hiding microformatted data is discouraged.
