The following errata report has been submitted for RFC6350,
"vCard Format Specification".

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?rfc=6350&eid=3845

--------------------------------------
Type: Technical
Reported by: David Riggle <riggle@mac.com>

Section: 6.2.4

Original Text
-------------
       PHOTO:data:image/jpeg;base64,MIICajCCAdOgAwIBAgICBEUwDQYJKoZIhv


Corrected Text
--------------
       PHOTO:data:image/jpeg;base64\,MIICajCCAdOgAwIBAgICBEUwDQYJKoZIhv


Notes
-----
Section 3.4 states that all property values must have COMMA characters escaped with a BACKSLASH character. The PHOTO property value in the example contains a comma. Therefore it must be escaped with a backslash. Note that there are several other uses of the "data:" URI scheme in the document that also need to be corrected.

Alternatively, a different format for base64 encoded data could be used in vCard 4.0. The ENCODING=b format used in vCard 3.0 wasn't so bad.

Instructions:
-------------
This errata is currently posted as "Reported". If necessary, please
use "Reply All" to discuss whether it should be verified or
rejected. When a decision is reached, the verifying party (IESG)
can log in to change the status and edit the report, if necessary.
