Re: Apple File Types and Creator
>My point is that a standard MacOS file type recommendation for vCards is
required. And it should be documented. It doesn't matter what it is, just as
long as it exists. 'VCF ' (0x56434620) is ok, but I don't like the space.
How about 'VCRD' (0x56435244)?
If the file extension is exposed in an email attachment, then keeping it the
same as on other platforms is a plus. Hence, my suggestion that you keep it
"VCF ". Likewise, suggest that you use "VCS " for vCalendar and "ICS " for
iCalendar. As these the file types used on other platforms. AFTER ALL,
interoperability is the name of the game with these formats.
In addition, there are already formal public identifiers to use when
specifying a clipboard or drag/drop rendering format. These are specified in
the subject specifications.
