[uf-discuss] Optimus - microformats parser

Is that a bug? The parsing rules at
seem pretty unambiguous:

"For all properties, when the element for a property is:

    * <abbr title>: use the value of the 'title' attribute. If there is no
'title' attribute then use the contents of the element."

So am I right in understanding that a parser should always ignore the
contents of <abbr>? In which case, do the parsing rules need revisiting?

I've found a bug :-(



Optimus is rendering the postal code in:

        <span class="postal-code">
          <abbr class="geo" title="52.4703;-1.9239">
            B15 3AF



and likewise where that postal code is part of an hCalendar's
