hListing Challenge Problems

These are some scenarios that are more difficult or advanced challenges for an hListing format to accomodate

Minimal Classified Ad

2 cute puppies need a new home in Noe Valley before this weekend. Call 415-555-1212 or email dont@litter.com.

<p class="hlisting">2 <span class="item fn">cute puppies</span>
 need a new home in <span class="location adr locality">Noe Valley</span> before

 <span class="lister">Call <span class="tel">415-555-1212</span> or 
  <a href="mailto:dont@litter.com" class="email">dont@litter.com</a></span>

[Note: the example above is dangerously incomplete, requiring the consumer of the microformatted data block to infer the dtlisted from the enclosing blog post or HTTP last-modified date; to infer that Noe Valley is in San Francisco, CA; and that the location of the item may not have any bearing on the location of the lister. Oh, and tel is missing an enclosing vcard...]
