I have a version of the RDFa Distiller That detects all XFN values[1]
(rel@tag, VoteLinks and rel@nofollow too), in pretty much the same way
as the Normal Distiller[2] Detects HTML @rel values, I think XFN and
other elemental microformats like rel="tag", and Votelinks are useful as
an example of how authors are already using RDFa like techniques in
their markup and how easy it is to adopt RDFa without really inventing
anything.

Yahoo! will only be indexing 5 of the 98 or so and FireFox 3 parses the same 5 I believe. So, when SearchMonkey kicks in there will be a lot of unhappy campers -- that is until we Semantify 'Em!
