FW: IranL10nInfo - First Week of The Year

```Hi,

Iâm going to find the regulation that is used in Iran to determine the first week of
the year.

To decide on the first week of the year weâve got three rules (don't tire out
yourself with these, just read on):

1. FirstDay
Indicates that the first week of the year starts on the first day of the year and ends
before the following designated first day of the week.

2. FirstFourDayWeek
Indicates that the first week of the year is the first week with four or more days
before the designated first day of the week.

3. FirstFullWeek
Indicates that the first week of the year begins on the first occurrence of the
designated first day of the week on or after the first day of the year.

Assuming that we are applying the above rules on the Persian (Hejri
Shamsi/Jalaali/Khorshidi) calendar, weâll have:

First day of the year is 1st of Farvardin
First day of the week is Saturday

I simplify the rules for the Persian calendar:

1. FirstDay
Indicates that the first week of the year starts on the 1st of Farvardin and ends
before the following Saturday.

2. FirstFourDayWeek
Indicates that the first week of the year is the first week with four or more days
before Saturday.

3. FirstFullWeek
Indicates that the first week of the year begins on the first occurrence of Saturday
on or after the 1st of Farvardin.

The rules are earier to understand when bringing them on a chart. This shows how each
of the rules specifies the first week of the year when the first day of the year is
fallen on each of the days of the week!

1st of Farvardin    FirstDay           FirstFourDayWeek       FirstFullWeek
Sat                         1                   1                               1
Sun                             1                       1
2
Mon                             1                       1
2
Tue                             1                       1
2
Wed                             1                       2
2
Thu                             1                       2
2
Fri                             1                       2
2

In the above table, 1 indicates that the first week of the year is the same as the
week in which the first day of the year (1st of Farvardin) exists. If the first week
of the year is shifted to the next week, then it is indicated by the number 2.```
```

Now, find the "Orange Seller"!!!?? :P

Which rule is used to determine the first week of year in Iran? (Or which one is more
used?)

tnx,
Omid
