Details

Are you aware that, for BC dates such as:

       <span class="vevent">
          <span class="dtstart">
             <span class="summary">-0321</span>
          </span>
       </span>

Operator is emitting a Dtstart value of 0321?
hCalendar uses ISO 8601 for its date notation, specifically the <a href="http://microformats.org/wiki/iso-8601">RFC 3339 profile</a>, which: "explicitly excludes durations and dates before the common era". In other words, it doesn't support events from before the CE, so Operator can't either.

This means this isn't a bug in Operator, but rather one in the Wikipedia software which adds dtstart and dtend when it shouldn't.
Won't fix.
