It's not *better* than GPX, it simply serves a different purpose. On a
page with lost of coordinates, adding Geo-microformat ("Geo-uF") by
wrapping them in plain HTML classes makes it possible for a parser to
extract them in a number of formats, one of which might by GPX. There
are a couple of people working on Geo-uF - GPX converters already, I
believe.

For instance, this page:



has Geo-uFs. Put its URL into the parser here:



and you can export KML or GeoRSS files - here's the link for KML:



(aka )

You could just as easily be exporting GPX.
