on spraci presently most events in the ical feeds appear as all day events
but in reality most events are not actually all day events but at least the
date seems to come up correctly.

I haven't been able to test this properly in iCal on a mac yet
(but it seems get the date right in Sunbird, KDE Calendar, etc)

Regarding iCal stuff I'd really like to get posting to work properly (so
people can post events via iCal)...
I can get it to post but it needs a way for the user to specify their
city/country and categories for the events to be posted correctly here.

In hCalendar this not as much of a problem (they can embed hCard stuff with
it for some of this - hopefully people who are writing authoring software
will think of providing options to do it) but I don't know how this sort of
thing could be done with iCal clients or feeds.

btw this is interesting:

looks like I'll have to make the scripts check for "alt" too!
(spraci listings need the details such as the name of the event to be text)
