Geo Microformat Tool
<abbr class="geo" title="-37.831107;144.962325">....</abbr>
Has anyone actually used this tool yet?
cooper, I am a huge fan of Microformats, I see them as an extension to HTML to give your semantics additional meaning and inherited functionality. Though I must admit I have not really experimented much with the geo Microformat as it is still a draft specification. But thanks for the link, it’s interesting to know there are implementations of geo appearing which will benefit the end user. :)
Alex - If you have time pick up this book if you have not already... You will not be able to put it down, at least I couldn't :)
cooper.semantics, Already got that book, it’s one of the many sitting on my shelf along with all the ones I put in this thread (plus some others too including the 5 SitePoint books I bought in the aussie fire offer)...
When I am not creating websites, I love reading other people’s opinions and perspectives on the industry, being self taught it's probably what has kept me inspired. ;)
I'm aware of this but haven't looked into it. However, nothing in the original post makes sense or works. Please explain anything you wrote.
Read up on microformats and in this case, the geo microformat and it will all make sense. :)

I am using the abbr design pattern to mark up the geo microformat.
When you go to the URI I sent you, go straight to this section:
"Drag this bookmarklet to the bookmarks bar so you can grab KML data from any Geo data participating URL."
Here is a working example for you:
