The CalendarWizard script does not set a Stroke/Line color for the frames.

I found that I could edit the script by adding this line:

setLineColor("Black", cel)

after line 440. Make sure it lines up vertically with

cel = createText(self.marginl ...

which is line 438.

This will fix the grid boxes for the days of the month. It looks like
there may need to be some tweaking of the position of the names of the
days of the week, since they end up being right-justified to the grid
boxes for the days.

I'll see if I can figure out about adding an option for making these
