Cool, cheers Scott,

I'm going to make a start getting a few examples together in answer to 
the two questions in that section. I've only used basecamp and mozilla 
sunbird for this kind of thing before so I've got a ton of reading to do 
first but essentially the vtodos it exports via iCal can reference 
milestones/events or act as standalone todo lists. I'm not sure if this 
works by embedding vtodos in the vevent or using an include method for 
referencing yet.

This is where my research is starting but the page has a bare minumum of 

Can anyone suggest better resources?

I can foresee vtodos and the little extras they offer embedded in a web 
page and enabled by some PHP/AJAX combo because by definition they need 
to be dynamic e.g. status changes.
