[microformats-discuss] Some kind "CSS Zen Garden" for microformats (was: Code to handle Microformats)

I am not sure about others, but I am not clear on a microformat "zen
garden". The CSS Zen Garden shows how flexible CSS is based on a singular
underlining (x)html structure. Would a microformat zen garden be similar and
just show styles? Or would the purpose be more directed toward the uses of
microformats with examples in a "real" like enviorment?


A band web site with tour dates (hCalendar), links to other bands (XFN),
licensing info (relLicense) and band information (hCard).

A company web site with contact information (hCard), locations (geo, adr),
lists of products (XOXO) and reviews of their products (hReview).

Maybe its just me, but it would be hard to instantly see the benefits of
microformats. Why not create Microformats.com <http://Microformats.com> to
convey the meaning/uses/importance of microformats better with a php progam
that extracts all the hCard, hCalendar, etc off of the web site?
