1 Introduction

The iCalendar file format, as described in [RFC2445], describes an extensible text structure that is capable of serializing a wide variety of calendar data, including meeting requests, task items, free/busy status, and exported calendars.

The iCalendar to Appointment Object Conversion Algorithm describes how applications can import appointments in the iCalendar file format to a Calendar object, as described in [MS-OXOCAL], and export Calendar objects to appointments in the iCalendar file format.

Sections 1.6 and 2 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
