“That sounds like a limitation of the tool youâ€™re using then, John. The spec doesnâ€™t require a type to be set. In fact, adr, tel and email all have default types which should be implied if no type is specified (if Iâ€™m reading it correctly).”
The tool I’m using is the Operator extension for Firefox. It gives you the options of exporting contacts to Windows Contacts or Yahoo Contacts or opening a map in Google, Yahoo or MapQuest. Exporting to either of the two contacts options leaves the address fields blank; exporting to any of the maps apps returns the address.
So which is incorrect – the markup or Windows/Yahoo’s implementation?
I took the cue for adding a type class to the address yesterday after downloading Oomph – http://visitmix.com/Lab/Oomph – which is used to reveal Microformats info on pages. They use the type class and the address detalis show up when exporting a contact.
Whether it’s part of the spec or not, I think it’s worth mentioning that this seems to be what’s required to enable this functionality.
