Subject RE: VCalendar

Not sure if it helps, but the iCalendar standard may prove useful:

iplanet calendar server, among others, uses it, plus the rfc is 
authored by some folx from lotus and microsoft... iCalendar is a 
descendent of vCalendar:

  "This memo is based on the earlier work of the vCalendar specification
    for the exchange of personal calendaring and scheduling information.
    In order to avoid confusion with this referenced work, this memo is
    to be known as the iCalendar specification."

Unfortunately it seem there is no DTD for calendar events yet, though 
it would make sense to convert the iCal spec...
