Abstract

vCard [RFC6350] is a data format for representing and exchanging information about individuals and other entities. It is a text-based format (as opposed to a binary format). This document defines xCard, an XML [W3C.REC-xml-20081126] representation for vCard. The underlying data structure is exactly the same, enabling a 1-to-1 mapping between the original vCard format and the XML representation. The XML formatting may be preferred in some contexts where an XML engine is readily available and may be reused instead of writing a standalone vCard parser.
