Thanks-- I'd missed that.  But what I don't find there is a service
that provides author, publisher, etc in XML markup or any API that
software could use to fill in the blanks (I review a book in a
CMS-backed web site, put in the ISBN, and the title and all are
displayed right there).  From my perspective then I still need
microformat best practices for describing all parts of an edition of a
book, including number of pages etc., some of which I've listed

And I'm still not sure if an hcite should be embedded in an hreview or
referenced in an hreview and how.
