it's cool script - the calendar is classic piece and quite configurable. I'll 
use it (propably) for the year to come ;)
I've got two suggestions for you:
1) your script runs for a while - you can use Progress Bar to give feedback to 
the user - see:
esp. StatusMessage("string"), ProgressReset(), ProgressTotal(number), 

2) You can use the (brand new) procedure 
string = ValueDialog(caption, message [,defaultvalue]) from new 1.2.1cvs to 
get user feedback e.g.
copyrightNotice = ValueDialog('Henry's Calendar', 'Type the text to be 
displayed on all pages...', '(c) myprinting company 2004')
but it will be available only for CVS users - or in 1.2.1 after release

you rules
