 From microformats.org:

<div class="vcard">
  <a class="url fn" href="http://tantek.com/">Tantek Çelik</a>
  <div class="org">Technorati</div>

It can be generalized to "when <div> is used in place of elements with  
inline content model and which are not in HTML." The simplest example  
could be <div class="h7">.
