I was thinking that the standard accept
header values could be used?...
http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html
And the server would specify a default
return type.

Eg.  If a client does not specify the
Accept header it would get the iCal
data returned as returned currently.

If the Accept header is set to
'type/html' then the HTML display of the
calendar or maybe a HTTP redirect
( maybe depending on server
configuration ) would be displayed.

What would really be good was if a HTML
anchor tag attribute could affect the
HTTP Accept header that the client sends.

Best regards,
Kervin
