Thanks Jessica. I think the problem lies in the microformat spec and documentation being unclear, which in turn will lead to inconsistent implementations of webmentions. You’d hope the markup itself didn’t matter, and there was a clearer hierarchy of class names, for example (h-entry is fine, but how does h-card work with descendants? Indiewebify suggested adding h-card to several elements, and nesting spans seems odd). As I think you’ve also found, it’s a bit trial and error.

Still, here we are, conducting a conversation on our websites via webmentions.

Yes! It might feel fragile, but they are working 😄 Truth be told I never worked out why h-card was supposed to be used in this context, either, but since it worked with it there I didn’t want to try taking it out.
