representative hCard authoring

NEEDS UPDATE for microformats2 h-card.


To publish a representative hCard on a page, in addition to properly following hcard-authoring instructions, you need to do at least one of two of the following (you can do both).

1. hyperlink to the page itself, perhaps around your icon or name (or both), and use both the "uid" and "url" class names in the class attribute on the hyperlink. e.g.:

<span class="vcard">
 <a href="http://tantek.com/" class="url uid fn">Tantek Çelik</a>
</span>

2. markup your links to other profiles with both rel="me" and the "url" class name. e.g.:

<span class="vcard">
 <span class="fn">Tantek Çelik</span> 
 (<a href="http://twitter.com/t" rel="me" class="url">my Twitter</a>)
</span>

Or better yet do both:

<span class="vcard">
 <a href="http://tantek.com/" class="url uid fn">Tantek Çelik</a>
 (<a href="http://twitter.com/t" rel="me" class="url">my Twitter</a>)
</span>

which has the following advantages over either individual example above:
