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

You may review the report below and at:

Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported by: David Riggle <riggle@mac.com>
Date Reported: 2013-12-20
Verified by: Barry Leiba (IESG)

Section: 6.2.4

Original Text

Corrected Text

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.

----- Verifier notes -----
This represents a difference from earlier versions of vCard, and the ABNF does not support escaping for URIs.  This errata report is correct and verified, but a full correction to the issue will have to wait for a document update.
