Accents do not appear in the vCard

This is part of the many compromises that allow"" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" role="link" class="csh-markdown csh-markdown-link csh-markdown-link-text">CARD.PM to claim universality.

There is a difference in appreciation between the Unix (Android, iOS, OSX) and Microsoft worlds that means that even today, vCards generated from your mobiles will give unsightly "À£" when opened on PC if there are accents in them.

We have chosen to remove accents from all cards until this situation is resolved, to ensure clear readability; and we are actively lobbying - among many companies - for a clear standard on this issue.

Of course, we store your details in the correct format and will convert all vCards as soon as the expected change in standard is fully implemented.
