vCard save file format binfile or file?

If I just use URL file to save vCard files I will get different results on Windows vs Macintosh regarding CRLF. VCard files are text files.

The vCard standard requires CRLF as the line format regardless of which platform the data is being written in. LiveCode using the URL file command will write the file differently on Windows compared to Mac or Linux.

I can build the variable for the vCard and use CRLF instead of RETURN for line endings.

If I write the file using URL binfile format will it still be a text file that other programs can read?
