I fixed the page and now it is valid. However, that doesn't change the
result. Having done a bit of testing, it appears that in the URI link
where I use a fragment identifier (which would normally use the # as in
index.html#fragment), I have tried both # and %23 (where that comes
from, I don't know) but neither work properly. When I use #, only the
first contact is downloaded no matter which contact link I click.
However, when I use %23 in the URI, the only response I get is "No
vCards found" which is obviously not true because the hCard code meets
the specs.

Maybe Brian Suda has changed the code on his server because a test page
of mine that used to work doesn't work any longer.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how to put multiple hCards on one page
and have individual links download individual vCards to the client's
address book?
