Exporting Contacts as vCards

Apple has chosen the vCard as its standard method of exchanging contact information among Address Book users as well as between Address Book and other programs. vCards are very small files that you can attach to email messages. Most contact management programs can read them, so they’re a good way to send contact information to just about anyone, including Windows users.
