<p class="vevent"><span class="summary">Work parties</span> will be
held at Belvide on Saturday mornings, <abbr class="rdate"
13th, 20th, 27th, & February 3rd, from 9.30am–12.30pm</abbr>, to carry
out habitat improvement, including scrub removal and coppicing. <span
class="location">Meet in the car park</span>; tools and gloves will be
provided. All help will be very welcome.</p>

This is just one interpretation, if you want a description, then you
can add <span class="description"> around the text you want. If you
want to also include the URL of the page as the URL in the iCalendar
file, then you can aslo add <a class="include" href="#fetched">

The RDATE should help "smooth out" all of those dates in a row. There
has been a problem with some calendar applications not being able to
import iCalendar files with RDATEs, but there isn't any documentation
about this yet.

If you manage to put some sample markup into a live HTML page please
send the link, it is much easier to verify, test and debug on a URL
than text in an email.
