The problem i see in the RFC and hCard for having multiple Images is this:
All properties that allow multiple instances, NICKNAME do so as comma
NICKNAME: bill, billy, Wil
and not as:
In the RFC it is normally written at the end of the document as
saying that it can take multiple 'text-values'
LOGO and IMAGE do not have the * operator, so i would interpret this as
NOT allowing multiple comma delimated values.
That leaves the question of can it have multiple instance of the same
No other property does this, as my NICKNAME example above shows, so i
would not think LOGO, PHOTO to be any different.
So i DON'T think it is possible to have two or more PHOTOs or LOGOs, but
i might be missing something.
