Re: [xml-dev] MIME type versus stand-alone format?


                vCard is now not only a MIME type

                but a stand-alone format.


What does that mean?

I suspect that they are using "MIME" in its original sense relating to standards for email attachments, and what they are saying here is the vCard instances can also exist on their own independently of email messages.
