From the scare-quoted uses of the word "trivial" in Johann_p's posting, I expect that he didn't understand what I mean by "non-trivial" in my posting - the phrase "non-trivial" as used there means that the programming involves some work, it isn't just a matter of adding a few names and dates, but of some rather complex mathematics and a good deal of serious research to find out how the algorithms for certain holidays work. E.g., I doubt that johann_p knows the algorithm for determining the Gregorian date of Diwali. If, however, he does, and is willing to do the programming to put it in a Mozilla calendar, that would be damned helpful, as it would have a great deal of utility in my life.
