xslt calendar view
See: "A Calendar, using the XSelerator's datetime library",

In addition to your requirements this XSLT app supports two display formats
for a week (with Sun starting the week and with Mon starting the week) and
also hilighting holidays and events from an external xml file.

Hope this helped.
