This is great to hear.

Tom Morris has already kindly added any23 to the parsers page:


Wow this is great!

Could you list the specific microformats that are parsed by any23?

Of course: Adr, Geo, hCalendar, hCard, hListing, hResume, hReview, License and XFN.

As listed also here, http://developers.any23.org

And even better, feel free to add any23 to the *-implementations pages
of the microformats that it supports, e.g. if it supports hCard, add
it to:


Sure, Will do!
