What is iCalendar?


When one wants to make calendar events readily available through a Web site, one can use the new ISP technology known as iCalendar. This provides a standard way of syndicating individual events and whole calendars. Usually people do not edit iCalendar information directly; it's more common for an ISP provider to include iCalendar support as part of an ISP Web hosting package. Usually it will require some sort of Content Management System (CMS) built on top of dynamic Web hosting in order to work. With such a system in place, uploaded events are automatically displayed on the Web and made available via syndication for people to download to handheld computers and PDAs.
