so using a little of both duration could be marked up thus...
<span class="h">1</span>: 
<span class="min">3</span>: 
<span class="s">42</span> 
Duration is marked up in a ISO 31-1 format which is how durations and
intervals should be marked up  as apposed to ISO 8601 for days and
+1 from me on this proposal.
Thinking back Toby mentioned something in an earlier post...

which is what got me thinking along those lines.
