>iCalendar, but maybe your calendar application does not support RDATE?

not all parsers and calender software used out in the real world support 
recurring events properly.
(and much to my frustration other stuff like timezone support in calendar 
software varies

I would suggest if you want all software out there to read it and
there are not many repetitions of a recurring event, to mark up it
 as seperate events  - until more software out there supports this feature.

(everything should at least support the basics - summary, dtstart, dtend,
etc) I guess - when in doubt, keep it as simple as possible!
