<entry-title>hCard supporting user profiles issues</entry-title>

This article is a stub. You can help the microformats.org wiki by expanding it.

This page is for documenting issues with hCard supporting user profiles, whether techniques, implementation challenges, or issues with specific implementations.

This is an important follow-up to hCard advocacy, that is, once a site has been evangelized to support hCard 1.0, if it has problems, or introduces problems in an update, we should document those and follow-up to help the site fix their hCards.

Please sign and date specific issues with ~~~~ so others have an idea when the problem was found, and who to potentially check with to see if the problem still exists.
