Yahoo Local Supports Microformats

Yahoo Local has announced that they’re now publishing their data in microformats. Included are hCards, hCalendars and hReviews.

I’m not sure how many instances of data this is, but its likely in the millions. Add that to hundreds of thousands of events on, thousands of reviews on Yahoo! Tech and millions of hCards on Flickr profiles and Yahoo! is easily the largest support of microformats today.
