This iCal download was my task ... and it was rather painful, as you
can see by my comments on the Scheduler page.

Some time since then, they added linkage to the RDF [1].  I wish they
had done so in the first place and/or notified me directly when they
did (I did include contact info in my comment).

Not that it matters in the end, as the OpenLink RDF Browsers [2] [3] and
the SIOC browser [4] all choke on it ... because it's invalid RDF [5].

   FatalError: The value of attribute "rdf:resource" associated with
   an element type "d:description-full" must not contain the '<'
   character.[Line = 27, Column = 318]

But it's at least a nod in the right direction.

Be seeing you,

Ted

wrapped in single-quotes.  In my testing, some Windows clients don't do
the right thing with angle-bracket wrapped URLs, but they and all other
clients tested do handle single-quote wrapping.)
