One of the problem with hCards is that you have to know vCards before
you can really use them well.  To the uninitiated, this can be a
daunting task.  (And the wiki isn't that helpful unless the reader is

Perhaps, if there was an introducton article to the make up of a vCard
(and thus an hCard) is would help with its adoption.  Give some
examples, like how to mark up a name,.... how to mark up an
address,... an e-mail addresses,... etc.  (Many people learn best
through examples.)

See ya
