Oh yeah, I forgot about HKit for parsing HCards.  I initially tried it, but I 
found that it was only giving me one telephone or address type, even if 
multiple types were listed. This made it impossible to distinguish between 
eg: Home Fax and Work Fax.  So instead I ended up using the X2V XSLT 
stylesheet which converts to VCard format, and then using the VCard parser 
from PEAR.  This seems to preserve all fields correctly.
