I depends on your set up, at work (Win XP, FF & Outlook) I get a browser
pop-up saying "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because
the protocol (webcal) isn't associated with any program."
If I use 'http' instead of webcal, it tries but fails to open in

It works fine with Thunderbird/Sunbird, but I don't have those installed

At home (OSX, FF/Safari and iCal), it would open the calendar in iCal.
I was hoping the same would happen with Vista, but I guess there is
another hurdle there.

Kind regards,
