1.  Introduction

   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.

   Earlier work on an XML format for vCard was started in 1998 by Frank
   Dawson [VCARD-DTD].  Sadly, it did not take over the world.

2.  Conventions

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

3.  The Schema

   The schema is expressed in the RELAX NG language [ISO.19757-2.2008]
   and is found in Appendix A.

5.  Design Considerations

   The general idea is to map vCard parameters, properties, and value
   types to XML elements.  For example, the "FN" property is mapped to
   the "fn" element.  In turn, that element contains a text element
   whose content corresponds to the vCard property's value.

   vCard parameters are also mapped to XML elements.  They are contained
   in the <parameters> element, which is contained in property elements.
   For example, the "TYPE" parameter applied to the "TEL" property would
   look like the following in XML:

     <tel>
       <parameters>
         <type>
           <text>voice</text>
           <text>video</text>
         </type>
       </parameters>
       <uri>tel:+1-555-555-555</uri>
     </tel>

   Parameters taking a list of values are simply repeated multiple
   times, once for each value in the list.

   Properties having structured values (e.g., the "N" property) are
   expressed by XML element trees.  Element names in that tree (e.g.,
   "surname", "given", etc.) do not have a vCard equivalent since they
   are identified by position in plain vCard.

   Line folding is a non-issue in XML.  Therefore, the mapping from
   vCard to XML is done after the unfolding procedure is carried out.
   Conversely, the mapping from XML to vCard is done before the folding
   procedure is carried out.

   A top-level <vcards> element is used as root.  It contains one or
   more <vcard> elements, each representing a complete vCard.  The
   <vcards> element MUST be present even when only a single vCard is
   present in an XML document.

   The group construct (Section 3.2 in [RFC6350]) is represented with
   the <group> element.  The "name" attribute contains the group's name.
   For example:

     <vcards>
       <vcard>
         <group name="contact">
           <fn>...</fn>
           <email>...</email>
         </group>
         <group name="media">
           <photo>...</photo>
         </group>
         <categories>...</categories>
       </vcard>
     </vcards>

   is equivalent to:

          BEGIN:VCARD 
     VERSION:4.0
     contact.FN:...
     contact.EMAIL:...
     media.PHOTO:...
     CATEGORIES:...
     END:VCARD
EID 4241 (Verified) is as follows:

Section: 5

Original Text:

     BEGIN:VCARD
     VERSION:4.0
     contact.FN=...
     contact.EMAIL=...
     media.PHOTO=...
     CATEGORIES=...
     END:VCARD

Corrected Text:

     BEGIN:VCARD
     VERSION:4.0
     contact.FN:...
     contact.EMAIL:...
     media.PHOTO:...
     CATEGORIES:...
     END:VCARD
Notes:
Property names and values are separated by a colon, not an equal sign.
5.1. Extensibility The original vCard format is extensible. New properties, parameters, data types and values (collectively known as vCard elements, not to be confused with XML elements) can be registered with IANA (see [RFC6350], Section 10.2). It is expected that these vCard extensions will also specify extensions to the XML format described in this document. New XML vCard property and parameter element names MUST be lower- case. This is necessary to ensure that round-tripping between XML and plain-text vCard works correctly. Unregistered extensions (i.e., those starting with "X-" and "VND-...-") are expressed in XML by using elements starting with "x-" and "vnd-...-". Usage of XML namespaces [W3C.REC-xml-names-20091208] for extensibility is RECOMMENDED for extensions that have no equivalent in plain-text vCard. Refer to Section 6 for the implications when converting between plain-text vCard and XML. Examples: <x-my-prop> <parameters> <pref><integer>1</integer></pref> </parameters> <text>value goes here</text> </x-my-prop> <ext:my-prop xmlns:ext="http://example.com/extensions/my-vcard"> <parameters> <pref><integer>1</integer></pref> </parameters> <!-- Core vCard elements --> <text>value goes here</text> <!-- are still accessible --> </ext:my-prop>
EID 4243 (Verified) is as follows:

     <x-my-prop>
       <parameters>
         <pref><integer>1</integer></pref>

     </x-my-prop>

     <ext:my-prop
         ext:xmlns="http://example.com/extensions/my-vcard">
       <parameters>
         <pref><integer>1</integer></pref>
       </parameters>                 <!-- Core vCard elements  -->
       <text>value goes here</text>  <!-- are still accessible -->
     </ext:my-prop>

Corrected Text:

   Examples:

     <x-my-prop>
       <parameters>
         <pref><integer>1</integer></pref>
       </parameters>
       <text>value goes here</text>
     </x-my-prop>

     <ext:my-prop
         xmlns:ext="http://example.com/extensions/my-vcard">
       <parameters>
         <pref><integer>1</integer></pref>
       </parameters>                 <!-- Core vCard elements  -->
       <text>value goes here</text>  <!-- are still accessible -->
     </ext:my-prop>
Notes:
The correct declaration of the "ext" namespace is "xmlns:ext", not "ext:xmlns".
Note that extension elements do not need the "X-" or "VND-" prefix in XML. The XML namespace mechanism is sufficient. A vCard XML parser MUST ignore XML elements and attributes for which it doesn't recognize the expanded name. The normal behavior of ignoring XML processing instructions whose target is not recognized MUST also be followed. In the original vCard format, the "VERSION" property was mandatory and played a role in extensibility. In XML, this property is absent. Its role is played by the vCard core namespace identifier, which includes the version number. vCard revisions will use a different namespace. Parameters containing a list of values are expressed using a list of elements in XML (e.g., the <type> element). 5.2. Limitations The schema does not validate the cardinality of properties. This is a limitation of the schema definition language. Cardinalities of the original vCard format [RFC6350] MUST still be respected. Some constructs (e.g., value enumerations in type parameters) have additional ordering constraints in XML. This is a result of limitations of the schema definition language, and the order is arbitrary. The order MUST be respected in XML for the vCard to be valid. However, reordering as part of conversion to or from plain vCard MAY happen. 6. Format Conversions When new properties or "X-" properties are used, a vCard<->xCard converter might not recognize them or know what the appropriate default value types are, yet they need to be able to preserve the values. A similar issue arises for unrecognized property parameters. As a result, the following rules are applied when dealing with unrecognized properties and property parameters: o When converting from vCard to xCard: * Any property that does not include a "VALUE" parameter and whose default value type is not known MUST be converted using the value type XML element <unknown>. The content of that element is the unprocessed value text. * Any unrecognized property parameter MUST be converted using the value type XML element <unknown>, with its content set to the parameter value text, treated as if it were a text value, or list of text values. * The content of "XML" properties is copied as is to XML. * Property and parameter XML element names are converted to lower-case. * Property value escaping is undone. For example, "\n" becomes a NEWLINE character (ASCII decimal 10). * Double-quoting of parameter values, as well as backslash escaping in parameter values, is undone. For example, PARAM="\"foo\",\"bar\"" becomes <param>"foo","bar"</param>. o When converting xCard to vCard: * Properties in the vCard 4 namespace: + If the converter knows of a specific plain-text representation for this property, it uses it. For example, the <adr> element corresponds to the "ADR" property, which is encoded using comma-separated lists separated by semicolons. + Otherwise, the property name is taken from the element name, property parameters are taken from the <parameters> element, and the content of the property is taken from the content of the value element. If the property element has attributes or contains other XML elements, they are dropped. + If a standard property's XML element contains XML elements and attributes for which the converter doesn't recognize the expanded name, they are dropped. Therefore, it is RECOMMENDED to limit extensions to the property level to ensure that all data is preserved intact in round-trip conversions. * Properties in other namespaces are wrapped as is inside an "XML" property. * Any <unknown> property value XML elements are converted directly into vCard values. The containing property MUST NOT have a "VALUE" parameter. * Any <unknown> parameter value XML elements are converted as if they were <text> value type XML elements. * Property and parameter names are converted to upper-case. * Property value escaping (Section 3.3 of [RFC6350]) is carried out. For example, a NEWLINE character (ASCII decimal 10) becomes "\n". * Double-quoting of parameter values, as well as backslash escaping in parameter values, is carried out. For example, <param>"foo","bar"</param> becomes PARAM="\"foo\",\"bar\"". For example, these two vCards are equivalent: <?xml version="1.0"?> <vcards xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:vcard-4.0"> <vcard> <fn><text>J. Doe</text></fn> <n> <surname>Doe</surname> <given>J.</given> <additional/> <prefix/> <suffix/> </n> <x-file> <parameters> <mediatype><text>image/jpeg</text></mediatype> </parameters> <unknown>alien.jpg</unknown> </x-file> <a xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" href="http://www.example.com">My web page!</a> </vcard> </vcards> BEGIN:VCARD VERSION:4.0 FN:J. Doe N:Doe;J.;; X-FILE;MEDIATYPE=image/jpeg:alien.jpg XML:<a xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"\n href="http://www.example.com">My web page!</a> END:VCARD 7. Security Considerations All the security considerations applicable to plain vCard [RFC6350] are applicable to this document as well. XML Signature [W3C.CR-xmldsig-core1-20110303] and XML Encryption [W3C.CR-xmlenc-core1-20110303] can be used with xCard to provide authentication and confidentiality. 8. IANA Considerations 8.1. Registration of the XML Namespace URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:vcard-4.0 Registrant Contact: The IESG <iesg@ietf.org> XML: None. Namespace URIs do not represent an XML specification. 8.2. Media Type This section defines the MIME media type [RFC4288] for use with vCard-in-XML data. To: ietf-types@iana.org Subject: Registration of media type application/vcard+xml Type name: application Subtype name: vcard+xml Required parameters: none Optional parameters: charset as defined for application/xml in [RFC3023]; per [RFC3023], use of the charset parameter with the value "utf-8" is "STRONGLY RECOMMENDED". Encoding considerations: Same as encoding considerations of application/xml as specified in [RFC3023]. Security considerations: This media type has all of the security considerations described in [RFC3023], plus those listed in Section 7. Interoperability considerations: This media type provides an alternative syntax to vCard data [RFC6350] based on XML. Published specification: This specification. Applications that use this media type: Applications that currently make use of the text/vcard media type can use this as an alternative. In general, applications that maintain or process contact information can use this media type. Additional information: Magic number(s): none File extension(s): XML data should use ".xml" as the file extension.

Notes:
Parameters are optional, so there needs to be a ? at the end.

Notes:
x-name and iana-token is missing in a couple of explicit listings of values, the above is just an example. RFC6350 allows extending these values with own x-names though.

This should be corrected in:
