The geo microformat tag in this template seems to break copy&paste of the dms coordinates by adding useless cruft. Can it either be implemented as a tag attribute, or moved to Template:Location instead, somewhere on the side where no one wants to copy anything? --Para 10:45, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

The change from display:hidden to display:none does not fix the copy&paste problem, the cruft is still there. Can someone who actually uses the microformat verify if the tag format works? We could then implement these hidden features with that instead, so that nothing extra needs to be rendered. --Para 21:46, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Sorry, I wasn't trying to fix the copy/paste problem but rather a problem that was occurring when this template is used in the middle of a sentence (it was inserting a large amount of white-space). —JeremyA 22:01, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Last time I checked the abbr tag was not allowed in the Mediawiki installation on commons. It would be the best solution though. Moving the MF to Location is a good idea too. --Dschwen 08:47, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
