IE5 Proprietary Calendar
Note: Based on Microsoft code and .htc calendar behavior
Description: Straight from the abnormally large brains of Microsoft developers comes this script. Utilizing IE 5's support for DHTML behaviors, Microsoft has made this highly stable and attractive calendar script for those needing a calendar to use on their site. Functional in IE 5 and up, and invisible to all other browsers. Three cheers to our masters!
Step 1: Before anything else, you need to make a minute change to the <HTML> tag (yes, HTML) of your page. This alternation is oblivious to non recognizing browsers, though is needed for IE 5 to correctly access and display the calendar.
Change your webpage's <HTML> tag so it reads instead:<HTML XMLNS:IE>
The changes are shown in red.
Step 2: Insert the below where you wish the calendar to appear on your page:
Step 3: Lastly and most importantly, download the following .htc file from Microsoft, and upload into the same directory as where everything else above resides in. This is the "brain" of the calendar:
calendar.htc (Click or Click it with the Shift key depressed in NS to download)
Important! While the above code (calendar.htc) is coded and offered by Microsoft as freeware, you should read and consciously agree to its user agreement first before downloading.
