Tried that, it didn't help. I wonder if any of the other cookbook
recipes I'm using are affecting it - I'm running UserAuth, CMSlike skin,
e-Protect - but I can't think why they would.

Already doing this too -- see

This bit works just fine - I guess I'm not making myself clear. I want
to be able to easily refer to a calendar date manually from within
another page, ie, tag an arbitary page with a date. For example: I have
a Meetings group in which I want to store meeting minutes. I want a very
simple way of referring within one of those pages to the date on which
the meeting took place, and have it marked up so that it displays in a
nice clean human-readable manner, but also shows in any backlink
searches I do for dates. And preferably have it be so simple that a
not-terribly-computer-literate user could use it and find it helpful.

I'll keep nibbling at it. If I come up with some markup that works for
me I'll add it to the WikiCalendar cookbook page.
