> Can you point to an overview of HyTime?

An overview of HyTime 2 (ISO/IEC 10744:1997) can be found at... damn.
I thought Eliot Kimber (one of the editors) had an overview, but all I
can find is fairly technical stuff.

From <URL:http://www.oreilly.com/people/staff/crism/hytime-sch.html>,
but note that this is *NOT* an overview, but the formal syntax of
HyTime 1 (ISO/IEC 10744:1992):

10.8.1.1 Date and Julian date 
   
  Date

   <!element [168]date - O (#PCDATA)>
  
   <!attlist date
   [169]HyTime NAME date
   [170]era (bc | bce | bp | ad | ce) #CURRENT
   -- [171]common attributes -->
   
   #CONTENT
          Constraint: date is valid date in UTC year-month-day format,
          except that "day" and "month-day" are also accepted. Year has 4
          digits, month and day have two, with high-order zeros used to
          maintain digit count.
          Omitted components are those of previous specified [172]event in
          this [173]schedule. 
          lextype(char+)
          
   era    
          Era: previous (BC/BCE/BP) or current (AD/CE)

  Julian date

   <!element [174]juldate - O (#PCDATA)>
          
   <!attlist juldate [175]HyTime NAME juldate
   -- [176]common attributes -->
     
   #CONTENT
          lextype(snum)
