I am looking for a free calender (which I might be spelling wrong) program to use on a web pabe. I am creating a web page and want to have a monthly calender with events listed on it, which I can change each month. I am looking for somethning free which I could maybe save as a JPeg or giff adn then insert.  Basically, something I could use on a web page as a monthly calender...sorry so vague.

Gif or JPG will be huge and take forever to download.  Stick to tables and it might work a little better.

You can create your "calendar" in MS Excel or MS Winword and then copy and paste it into any state of the art web design tool.  (Netscape 4.0 composer, FrontPage 98 come to mind.  Not sure about MSIE 4.0 since I refuse to use it.)

Another option is to use your favorite calendar creation tool (I can point you in the direction of a few if you want) and then do a screen capture of the print preview.  Save this as gif and you are all set.  I recommend you change your color settings to 256 or even 16 color before you do a screen capture, because it will be huge if you don't.  To do a screen capture, you need a program such as LView Pro or Paint Shop Pro, to name a few shareware programs.

I'm leaving this open for other comments, but if this works for you I'll post as an answer.

OK, this one isn't free, but it is a start:

This one is free and is unix based:  Basically what you want

This is DOS based, and you will have to do a screen capture:

You can also contact Brian M. Roder (roderb@csugrad.cs.vt.edu) who has written such a program.  His web page is http://www.cslab.vt.edu/~roderb/projects.html, but the links don't work properly.
