This page is an informative section of the hCard specification.

The following implementations have been developed which either generate or parse hCards. If you have such an hCard implementation, feel free to add it to the top of the New Implementations section. If you have a page or site which just publishes hCards, please use hcard-examples-in-wild instead.
