           Summary: The Gregorian is not a Universal standard for
                    calendars. HTML5 must provide ways for other calendar

                    Arab countries. The "Persian" calendar is used in

Comment:
The Gregorian is not a Universal standard for calendars. HTML5 must provide
ways for other calendar types. e.g. The "Hijri" calendar is used throughout in
Arab countries. The "Persian" calendar is used in Iran, Afghanistan and
Pakistan. The "Hebrew" calendar is used by Jews. So HTML5 must provide room
for localization and internationalization of documents and web-pages.
