side note:

A URI scheme for "geo" does now exists - it is standardized in RFC 5870, 
so the following example:

>> 			      class="geo">(Eastbourne)</abbr>
>> 		</i>
>> 	</div>

... could also include a

      <i class='note'> 102.4 MHz
          <a href='geo:50.9761;0.2293'>(Eastbourne)</a>

(Disclaimer: I'm one of the authors of the "geo" URI scheme, so my view 
might be biased ;)
