I have looked at the source file… pretty crowded markup :/

<p class='phone'>
     <strong class='resolution'>
     <span id="item15ev" class="vevent">
     <span class="description">
         RESOLUTION: to meet <abbr class="dtstart"
         title="2005-08-31T14:30:00-0400">2:30pmET Weds 31 Aug</abbr>
         for <abbr title="PT1H30M" class="duration">1.5hrs</abbr> to
         <b class="summary">advance cwm work</b>. timbl, danc, vlad,
         daniel.
     </span>
     </span>
     </strong>
</p>

You accumulate span and classes

1st possible factorization

<p class='phone'>
     <strong class='resolution'>
     <span id="item15ev" class="vevent description">
         RESOLUTION: to meet <abbr class="dtstart"
         title="2005-08-31T14:30:00-0400">2:30pmET Weds 31 Aug</abbr>
         for <abbr title="PT1H30M" class="duration">1.5hrs</abbr> to
         <b class="summary">advance cwm work</b>. timbl, danc, vlad,
         daniel.
     </span>
     </strong>
</p>

2nd possible factorization

<p class='phone'>
     <strong id="item15ev" class="resolution vevent description">
         RESOLUTION: to meet <abbr class="dtstart"
         title="2005-08-31T14:30:00-0400">2:30pmET Weds 31 Aug</abbr>
         for <abbr title="PT1H30M" class="duration">1.5hrs</abbr> to
         <b class="summary">advance cwm work</b>. timbl, danc, vlad,
         daniel.
     </strong>

The code is now a lot lighter. Too many classes in XHTML makes it as  
difficult to type and understand than RDF/XML and a lot of efforts  
not typo-free.

I do not agree with the use of abbr for date transformation, but I  
know some people have different opinions on that. So it could be  
considered as an open issue, and still be discussed.

QUESTION:
     How the XHTML code has been created? by hand? by an automatic tool?
     It certainly uses [Scribe script][1], but how was done the  
hcalendar “enrichment”?
