maybe this will be some help? I have taken the 2 hCalendar examples
from the hCalendar webpage and replaced the abbr pattern with the time
element.

http://microformats.org/wiki/hcalendar#Example

<div class="vevent">
 <a class="url" href="http://www.web2con.com/">http://www.web2con.com/</a>
  <span class="summary">Web 2.0 Conference</span>:
  <time class="dtstart" datetime="2007-10-05">October 5</time>-
  <time class="dtend" datetime="2007-10-20">19</time>,
 at the <span class="location">Argent Hotel, San Francisco, CA</span>
 </div>

<div class="vevent">
<h3 class="summary">XYZ Project Review</h3>
<p class="description">Project XYZ Review Meeting</p>
<p>To be held on <time class="dtstart"
datetime="1998-03-12T08:30:00-05:00">12 March 1998 from 8:30am
EST</time>
until <time class="dtend" datetime="1998-03-12T09:30:00-05:00">9:30am
EST</time></p>
<p>Location: <span class="location">1CP Conference Room 4350</span></p>
<small>Booked by: <span class="uid">guid-1.host1.com</span> on
<time class="dtstamp" datetime="19980309T231000Z">9 Mar 1998
6:00pm</time></small>
</div>

actions:
replace "abbr" with "time"
replace @title with @datetime
(note: retain @class dtstart|dtend|dtstamp)
