I just added hCard formatting to the contact info on my personal
website, and I came across some uncertainty about handling of
My two actual cases were, class="org organization-name" and
class="tel value", both of which appear to be redundant on further
reading. But is this kind of mixing of sub-properties with parent
properties in the same class list generally proper syntax for cases
where only one sub-property is used? If, for example, I wanted to
indicate that I work in the espionage department, but not specify
which company I work for, would the following be okay?
<span class="org organization-unit"> Espionage </a>
Or if I only wanted to list my last name?
<span class="n family-name">Smith</span>
And while I'm at it, what if two sub-properties have the same value?
If one's name were "Rose Rose," could I do the following?
<span class="n given-name family-name">Rose</span>
On another note, I didn't previously mention any type on my address,
but it was imported as a business address for some reason, so I
wanted to specify the type as home. I don't see any way to do this
without adding information to my content, .e.g <span
class="type">Home</span>, which is what I did. It's not a big deal
for me, but this is the first time I've needed to change the content
of a page in order to add a microformat, and I thought it might be
