Faruk, this is not an error on your end. The web service that converts
an HTML to an ics file currently does not yet support ATTENDEE. This
was brought-up back in November[1] 2005, but wasn't much discussed.
Attendee is a slightly weird property because it can take several
attribute which were never flushed out, so the web service put
implementing that on hold.

If you want to discuss HOW to actually encode attendee i sugest having
a look at the RFC and we can move forward from there.
