The big problem is to display the event time, when it's different from 
the post date. In my version, I've added a filter to "the_content", 
which adds a "dates" <div> to the content. I've not yet looked at your 
code, but I guess you've not addressed this issue.


Dammit Jim, I'm a programmer... not a mind reader!
