[uf-new] hAudio v0.7 released

I’d like to point out that the currently proposed spec (http:// 
microformats.org/wiki/audio-info-proposal#Complete_Album_Examplet) of  
nesting an haudio element in a track element to mark up albums is  
incompatible with using tables for the track listings. In a table,  
you only have one element per track that wraps all the information  
(the table row). So both track and haudio would need to be the same  

I don’t know if the current proposed mark-up is the way it is  
(nesting an haudio element inside another element ‘track’) to clarify  
the relationship of the elements, or if this is actually the proposed  
solution in a strict sense. If the latter is the case, a lot of the  
sites provided as example mark-up would actually be incompatible with  
the proposed solution as they all use tables and would therefore be  
unable to nest the elements as specified. This would be unacceptable  
because I think a lot of people (as you can see, again, on the sites  
provided as examples) would agree that using a table is a valid way  
of marking up a track listing.

(Of course, one could just put another whole table with the class  
‘haudio’ *inside* the table row with the class ‘track’, but why  
anyone would want to do this is beyond me.
