I had not seen that no. Thanks for the link. An inline cryptographic
digest URI format sounds like it presents interesting opportunities
for sharing this information.

I've captured some of this in the hcard-brainstorming wiki page in the
hopes that if this group does figure out how hCard can/should be used
with the 'key' property, we can write that up as at least as
examples/suggestions in the hCard spec itself.


Feel free to update/edit details on that wiki page.

Yes, that's a known issue, in particular, due to hCard's use of the
class name "vcard".

Actually, there's no vCard (vcf) there.

There *is* an hCard, albeit minimal, (that uses the class name
"vcard") as noted above.

microformats-2[1] is resolving this issue by moving to a 1:1 naming of
spec / root class name, using "h-card" for the class name. You can of
course support both simultaneously on the same data since HTML permits
multiple class names, e.g. class="h-card vcard".

Thanks for your explorations on this, I think it is likely to help
bridge some gaps.
