Hi - My app is generating a iCalendar (.ics file).  This seems to work fine on most PCs.  However, on some (running Outlook 2010) it fails to load.  On Macs, it seems to miss call notes and locations.

Can someone take a quick look at the text generated and let me know if I am missing anything.

Thank you.
