OK I have added parsing more than one microformat to the UfXtract API. You have always been able to do this with the .Net library I just did not build it into API. The API format parameter can now takes either a single value or comma delimited list as the example below. 


The .Net library code looks like this:

using UfXtract;

string url = "http://www.glennjones.net/about/";

UfWebRequest webRequest = new UfWebRequest();

ArrayList formatArray = new ArrayList();

webRequest.Load(url, formatArray);

if (webRequest.Data.Nodes.Count > 0)
   UfDataToJson dataConvertor = new UfDataToJson();
   Response.ContentType = "application/json";

   Response.Write(dataConvertor.Convert(webRequest.Data, formatArray));

It's about twice as slow running all the microformats formats at once than just one at once. That said I am only talking about an extra 50ms.
