Internet Calendaring and Scheduling Core Object Specification - relevant for both sharing (Group Calendaring) and Data Synch

aka ICalendar http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICalendar

X Cal is the XML DTD spec related to it.

Some comparisons http://wmf.editthispage.com/discuss/msgReader$7900?mode=day to VCal

Apparently http://wmf.editthispage.com/discuss/msgReader$7904?mode=day MsOutlook (and MsEntourage) can work with ICal format.
