FYI...

"A week or so ago, I started working with the X2V code, 
which works great but has a lot of redundancy. In order
to have some confidence that I wouldn't break it, I
developed a test case for each piece of the code that
I touched. ..."
 -- hcardTest materials, XHTML version of RFC2426, and fun with
microformats
http://microformats.org/discuss/mail/microformats-dev/2005-July/000010.html

While I was at it, I adapted the techniques from
my derived version of xhtml2vcard.xsl to consume
hCalendar...

It doesn't cover the iCalendar spec in nearly as much
detail as http://www.w3.org/2002/12/cal/fromIcal.py
(no specific code for repeating events, timezones,
or any of that).

It should be straightforward to get it to produce RDF, i.e.
to be a GRDDL transformation for hCalendar.

Then all we'd need is an XMDP profile for hCalendar, which
the microformats folks seem to agree is in order...

[[
Would it be more in the spirit of HTML to define these classes in a
metadata
profile (http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/global.html#h-7.4.4.3), so
that "User agents may... perform some activity based on known
conventions for that profile"? Should this be a part of microformats
specifications in general? (If not, why not?) 
              * ACCEPTED. Yes, all microformats that introduce new
                classnames SHOULD include an XMDP
                (http://gmpg.org/xmdp/) profile (which itself is a
                microformat for defining HTML metadata profiles) that
                defines those classnames.

and we'd have all the hCalendar data connected to the upper-case
Semantic Web. :)
