No, not necessarily. I have entries like this: %%(diary-anniversary 1981 03 17) Somebody's birthday (%d years) and the agenda view shows "Somebody's birthday (19 years)"; the actual heading for this entry is ignored. In fact, I have a large number of such entries all in the same headline. However, I don't know if other diary- functions work the same way. > Or do I miss something?
