- They recommend using the Olson database on timezones. However, it
should be noted that it is incomplete.
- iCalendar does not have a notion of "floating" times for recurrence
rules. A local time zone must be specified. This is the only
that I found with iCal. For their purposes they need not be
however they may want to note this difference.

We still have some unresolved issues with recurrence rules.
Eric has a list of iCalendar issues at:
