vCard : Java Glossary

The CurrCon Java Applet displays prices on this web page converted with today’s exchange rates into your local international currency, e.g. Euros, US dollars, Canadian dollars, British Pounds, Indian Rupees… CurrCon requires an up-to-date browser and Java version 1.8, preferably 1.8.0_121. If you can’t see the prices in your local currency, Troubleshoot. Use Firefox for best results.

IMC (Internet Mail Consortium) Versit’s interchange format for electronic business cards that typically uses the *.vcf filename suffix. The format is done using only printable ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) characters. Have a look at my electronic business card. You can include images as URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) or as digitised logo and photo. The card contains your address for both domestic and international mail, your latitude and longitude, your telephone numbers, your email addresses, how your name is pronounced, a wav or AU file of you pronouncing your name… You can view it properly with the vCard viewer. There is a primitive one inside Netscape Communicator. You can find out your latitude and longitude by reading the tag on a nearby utility pole, or you can estimate it from an online map. You enter it like this: 48.41,-123.37. Dates are in MM/DD/YYYY form on the website and YYYYMMDD internally. The file it generates has the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) field twice. This is to get around a bug in Outlook that can’t see the URL field unless you repeat it. It does not handle the Outlook anniversary, gender, spouse, children, or email digital id fields.

Microsoft Outlook Mail program can edit, display and collect VCFs (Versit Card Files). However, it cannot export a VCF (Versit Card File) file.

vCard Organiser shareware is a tool to create vCards. It has no help. You are supposed to just know what is supposed to go in each field. Until you register for  $25.00 USD , all you can do is fill in the blanks and view vCards. You can’t save any to disk. It has no installer. You just unzip it to a directory.
