"Broken"...what i mean is that there are nonexistent pages with the 
ugly tiny question marks on every date and on the links to 
next/previous months, too.  At the first glance, there are a lot of 
question marks.

WikiCal already doesn't incorporate the "question marks" on every date 
or month.  WikiCal just incorporated the dates/months without needing 
to stress the nonexistent links with question marks like PmCal does.

Now for, I'm sticking to wikical.  the more time I play with 
PmCal..I'll figure it out on how to embed the edit/gui buttons I saw on 
other wiki.

Thanks for your detailed response.  I need to review it again at times 
to digest the knowledge.
