There are also efforts to make it possible to browser hcard-based
Address Books on Bonjour networks (see Bonsoir --

browsability, as was said, it makes it so much easier to be able to
style hcards on a network than to convert vcf to hcard to style...
Write once, style frequently... or something! ;)
Without knowing more about your app, it's hard to say otherwise.
