The Holiday site [http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/holidays.html] contains a link to [http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/ical/library/nhlhockey.html]. Unfortunately the calendars hosted on that site doesn't work with Sunbird 0.3a2+. All you see is the 'There has been an error reading data ...' message. We should link only to calendars that work with Sunbird/Lightning. Otherwise users might get a wrong impression.
Any idea what's wrong with those calendars? UTF-8? Timezones? or just simple invalid ics?

Some of them (such as the Rangers and Maple Leafs calendars) return a 404 at the "final" location. Others (such as the Sharks) resolve, and are using the wrong mime-type.

(In reply to comment #1) We also fail after downloading and importing. From a look at one of the files it is because of the missing VTIMEZONE.

well, at least polish calendar is not valid each item has daily recurrence (not yearly!) I opened them and got error which confirms what i wrote: Error: window.startDate has no properties Source File: chrome://calendar/content/calendar-recurrence-dialog.js Line: 86 besides one event starts in 2078, if I try to open it -> Sunbird crash and Feedback Agent is launched - should I report it as separete issue? eg. SouthAfricaHolidays and seems to be ok
