Now that you mentioned that, I elaborate.  I didn't want to raise
it here ;).

[The message has an attached image, if it does not get through,
you can find it here: http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~behdad/cal.jpg

The current layout we are used to is "top to bottom, then right
to left".  It means, rows are arranged top to bottom, then in
each row, cells are arranged from right to left.  This one turns
out something like the first one in the attached image.

But I remember seeing wall calendars with direction "right to
left, then top to bottom".  This is the second layout in the
attached shot.

And the third one in the screenshot attached is the first layout,
but instead of single letter day of week names, I have used
something more intuitive, but apparently it's quite a failure and
should never be used.
