hCard Examples in the wild
This page is an informative section of the hCard specification.
The following sites have published hCards, and thus are a great place to start for anyone looking for examples "in the wild" to try parsing, indexing, organizing etc.
If people or organizations on your site are marked up with hCard (even just your own contact information), feel free to add it to the top of this list. Please be sure to include at least one URL to a page on your site that includes actual hCard markup. Examples added without a URL to a page with hCard markup may be removed.
Want to get started with writing an hCard? Use the hCard creator to write up some contact information and publish it, or follow the hCard authoring tips to add hCard markup to your current contact page.
You can use these buttons on pages with hCards. See buttons#hCard for any recent additions.

- Inspired by this I thought to try the same for SVG at Barefoot ...
- <img class="photo" style="display:none;" src="data:image/svg+xml;text,<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' standalone='no'?><svg xmlns:svg='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg' xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg' version='1.0' width='50' height='80' id='svg3957'><defs id='defs3959' /><path d='M 28.91433,...32.192802 z' style='fill:#cc4d00;fill-opacity:1;fill-rule:evenodd;stroke:none;stroke-width:0.625;stroke-linecap:butt;stroke-linejoin:miter;stroke-miterlimit:4;stroke-opacity:1' id='path9551' /></svg>" alt="Barefoot">
- Does it work?? Well it parses OK. Some automated tools replace the < with %3C (etc., e.g. Brian Suda's vCard form). Unfortunately Kontact (KDE contacts tool) doesn't handle SVG as a vCard photo or logo format - I don't know if this is a standard. It seems it could work and maybe even does somewhere. Maybe the text field needs to be Base64 encoded? ... see pbhj's slashdot journal for a bit more on this.

This section organizes examples into several rough categories as follows. If an example fits in more than one cateogry, use the *last* matching category in this list that matches the specific hCard example(s) in the wild that you are trying to categorize.
- Individuals - one card per person, perhaps sort alphabetically by "family-name". People with their own hCards (typically) on their own site.
- Organizations - one card per organization, alphabetical by "fn". Organizations with their own hCard(s) (typically) on their own site.
- Institutions - which list more than one person, with a count estimating the # of hCards, e.g. 40k for Avon. Also indicate complexity of information supplied, eg. just name+number vs. complete details. Alphabetically sorted by "org" with perhaps a few individuals listed in a single sub-bullet, comma delimited, sorted by "family-name".
- Online Profiles - which host profiles for more than one person, with a count estimating the # of hCards, e.g. 10m+ for Flickr.com. Alphabetically sorted by "fn" with perhaps a few individuals listed in a single sub-bullet, comma delimited, sorted by "family-name".
- Online Venues - which provide listings for businesses or organizations, with a count estimating the # of venues, e.g. ~10k for Upcoming.org. Alphabetically sorted by service/site name, with perhaps a few specific venues listed in a single sub-bullet, comma delimited, sorted by "fn".
- Speakers Listings - event sites' speakers pages where the speakers are marked up with hCard. Sort by date, sub-grouped by year. Most recent first. Perhaps a few individuals listed in a single sub-bullet each event, comma delimited, sorted by "family-name".
In addition there is a separate "UTF8 Examples" section that can be used to put another link to any hCard examples in the wild which exercise various non-ASCII7 / non-english characters for various property values.
As each section itself become quite large (we might be there already, once we sort through the above "Reviewed Examples"), it will probably be moved to a separate page, leaving its heading here in place, and replacing its contents here with a link to the separate page and perhaps a stats summary.

These examples all contain one or more characters in UTF8 that are outside the ASCII7 range and make for excellent test cases to make sure you are handling UTF8 properly throughout your hCard parsing and transforming. And especially if you are generating vCards, these test cases will help you make sure you are generating UTF8 vCards in such a way that can be recognized by UTF8 supporting vCard applications. Sorted roughly alphabetically (per Unicode).
- Dmitry Dzhus embedded his UTF8 encoded hCard with Russian characters in «Author» page of his website.
- Tantek's Thoughts encodes Çelik as inline UTF8.
- Technorati Japan contact information encodes Japanese as inline UTF8.
- Vadym Hetman (Wikipedia-UK (Ukranian))
These UTF8 examples only have UTF8 for the "nickname" property and are thus are a bit easier for testing than the previous examples.
- Various Wikipedia-EN articles, e.g. the "nickname" in: Noyabrsk (Russian), Thessaloniki (Greek), Kyoto (Japanese) and Beijing (Chinese)
