Arg. There's an XML encoding too? Why can't these things just be simple?

I really meant VCard files deployed on the web with auto-discovery, 
though I'm starting to get the feeling that such a beast doesn't exist. 
If they've not got their own specific MIME type, then auto-discovery 
can't work, as software can hardly go hunting inside anything declared 
as text/xml just in case it has a vCard inside...
