When the same data can be viewed either as a Web page or as data to
be consumed by an application, there's a general issue over how to
get the user from one to the other. Typically it's how you get the
user from browser to specialized application. Julian Reschke
addresses this problem for WebDAV in this document
It uses a new MIME type to prompt the browser to launch an
appropriate application. Contrast that with the approach used in
Apple's iCal, where they created a new scheme for data that's
actually available via HTTP.
I thought I'd post about this here in case there are reviews of
Julian's document or thoughts on applicability for calendars.
