Really? As I say, I only had a quick skim of the code on
hg.microformats.org, and don't really know much XSLT anyway, so I may well
have missed it. I also think I was explicitly looking for the word "axis"
when I was skimming, so may have missed it because of...

That would be contrary to Tantek's guidelines on the Wiki:

| 2. find the <td> and <th> elements referenced by those IDs (call them

The example I provided will be correctly parsed as hCard according to

Not a particularly useful example: the table headers don't contain any
microformat classes. Also, what's up with the extra "uid" classes for each
