Thank you so much Francis. Sorry about the mess, it's been a while since
I've used mail lists :-)

One thing that I would like to understand better is how to use or maybe
extend an existing microformat. One example: you've mentioned it would be
interesting to use hcard for player information. I find the hcard
microformat closely tied to the semantic concept of "contacts" rather than
"persons", if you will. When I think about what information should be
presented about a player it is clear to me that there is no need for the
majority of the fields that are part of the specification (e.g. telephone
numbers, addresses, postal code, email, aim screennames, etc), while there
are other data that must be included (e.g. number of goals, date of birth
and death, etc). 

Should or could I just extend the format by creating new fields and
subtypes? I wonder what would the elegant solution be.
