Thanks Brian. No, I don't have an example of where the type
subproperty is needed. In fact, like you, I saw no need for it with
hCard (although I can see the need in vcard, where the logo can be
expressed directly in the vcard as base64). Perhaps there should be a
mention on the hCard page that logo does not have a type subproperty?

Subject: Re: [uf-discuss] "type" subproperty in the hCard logo
from RFC 2426 3.5.3 LOGO Type Definition:
Type special notes: The type can include the type parameter "TYPE" to
specify the graphic image format type. The TYPE parameter values
be one of the IANA registered image formats or a non-standard image
because the <img> element doesn't really allow you to nest child
elements, and since the type attribute is really on available on the
'a' element. There is no way to really encode the value. I'm not sure
exact what purpose it serves in a vCard application anyway.
(i think) X2V will automatically extract the TYPE property from the
@src string if possible.
Do you have an example of a place you think you NEED a type defined on
