Hi All

I have just open-sourced UfXtract .Net microformats parser.  With a few
lines of code you can load and parse microformats from Urls or HTML
strings.  You can then extract the data directly in .Net or convert it
into JSON, JSON-P or XML. 

UfXtract currently supports the following microformats hCard, hCalendar,
hReview, hResume, hAtom, XFN, rel-tag, geo, adr, rel-nofollow,
rel-license, rel-directory, rel-home, rel-enclosure, rel-payment and

It also supports a handful of POSH patterns hCard-XFN, rel-me,
rel-next/previous, test-suite and test-fixture. The support of rel-me
and rel-next/previous was added to help people build social graph

UfXtract can typically parse a page between 10-50ms. I have gone to some
pains to build a test suite to make sure it conforms as closely as
possible to the microformats specs. 

You can also easily create new microformats and POSH definitions using
some simple .Net objects.
