vCard ENCODING

UTF-8 encoded vCard import prompts error as unrecognised vCard format. US ASCII 20127 encoded vCard successfully imported

ADR

If you do NOT specify TYPE=HOME,WORK,... then no address information is imported

NOTE

According to the example in the RFC spec, all commas should be escaped, but WAB does not Un-escape them, leaving \, in the notes field.

On both OSX.3 and OSX.4

For organization contact info, sets the FN and ORG to the name of the organization and N to empty.

Also treats imported vCards like that as organization contact info cards visibly in the UI.
