Re: ICalendar - Mozilla - Outlook compatibility
Unfortunately support of VCalendar in Mozilla Calendar and Outlook
is even more deficient. Those clients ignore repetitions when importing
VCalendar, so it is only arppropiate for single events :s. In addtion, I
am not completely sure, but I think ICalendar substitutes progressively
Thank you, anyway.
By the way, my congratulations to Ximian Evolution developers on its
ICalendar support. It is the only software I know really RFC compilant.

Hi there German,
You write great English, I would have never known you were not American.
I wanted to ask why aren't you doing it in the vCalendar format? From
what I understand vCal is more of a standard. Here's a link

Subject: ICalendar - Mozilla - Outlook compatibility
An application I'm developing writes ICalendars for repeating
events. It would be desirable (almost necessary) that those ICalendars
could be imported in Outlook 2002 and Mozilla Calendar. Outlook 2002
supports the property VTIMEZONE -with some restrictions- but Mozilla
ignores it and interprets DTSTART (and DTEND) as local time. Specifying
DTSTART (and DTEND) in UTC time format makes Mozilla at least to
calculate the correct local time, but without considering time zone
shifts (from DST to Standard Time or vice versa).
So it is impossible to have an ICalendar with a repeating event with
dates on both sides of a time zone shift correctly imported in Mozilla
Calendar but I would like that, at least, offset to UTC was considered
but specifying also the VTIMEZONE property to let ICalendar be correctly
imported in Outlook.
Is this possible?
Please, excuse me for my poor English.
