vCard 3.0 format specification

QR Code Generator 2.1.0 now supports vCard format 3.0.
Here we will describe the specifications and give some examples.

Specification:

A vCard contains one ore more vCard objects. The content of one vCard object is encompassed within BEGIN:VCARD and END:VCARD. All vCards must contain the VERSION property, directly after the BEGIN tag.

Reference specification for vCard 3.0 is contained in RFC 2425 and RFC 2426.

The content of a vCard contains PROPERTIES and their ATTRIBUTES in the following syntax:

          PROPERTY[;PARAMETER]:attribute[;attribute]

where PROPERTY defines the type of attribute(s) and PARAMETER can give a more specified description of the PROPERTY.

An example vCard 3.0 may look like:

BEGIN:VCARD
