hCard… sharing contact information

hCard is a simple, open, distributed format for representing people, companies, organizations, and places, using a 1:1 representation of vCard (RFC2426) properties and values in semantic HTML or XHTML. hCard is one of several open microformat standards suitable for embedding in HTML, XHTML, Atom, RSS, and arbitrary XML.

This is how the HTML code for my contact information would look in hCard format.

<div id="hcard-Peter-Andreas-Molgaard" class="vcard">
  <a class="url fn n" href="http://www.hellogroup.com">
    <span class="given-name">Peter</span>
    <span class="additional-name">Andreas</span>
    <span class="family-name">Molgaard</span>
  <div class="org">Hello Group A/S</div>
  <div class="adr">
    <div class="street-address">Fredericiagade 15</div>
    <span class="locality">Copenhagen K.</span>
    <span class="region">Copenhagen</span>
    <span class="postal-code">1310</span>
    <span class="country-name">Denmark</span>
 <div class="tel">+4542133417</div>
