	We didn't do a very good job at looking at existing microformats for 
the relevant pieces we could re-use (because no format really exists for 
"widgets"), but we plan on it.  Your point about hCard is excellent. 
The author info should probably just BE an hCard.  Good point on 
camelCase as well.  We'll look at switching them.
	Is word-word the preferred format for classes in microformats? 
Personally, I usually use camelCase, but if there's already a 
convention, we'll stick to that.

Thanks for the feedback!
