Poof, "Jalali Calendar" is such a cute name, not?
It has a serious problem: there already exits a Jalali calendar that is different from this calendar we are talking about. It uses the same leap year rules, but each month is 30 days, with 5 or 6 additional days added at the end [Mosahab Persian Encyclopedia, Vol 1, Page 657, "taghvim-e jalaali" entry]. roozbeh _______________________________________________ PersianComputing mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.sharif.edu/mailman/listinfo/persiancomputing
