Best way to share a Google Calendar with a non-gmail user?

By following the instructions on Google Calendar to share it, when a non-gmail user gets the invite they are asked for an account and pw.  The consequence of that requirement is either:

a) they have to create a new gmail account (who wants ANOTHER email account to keep track of?)


b) I have to give them my user name and pw (which gives them access to my email and everything on my gmail account)

To simply share a calendar, neither of those two requirements seem ideal.

I have shared with other non-gmail users and they never reported an issue.  Maybe they created a gmail account and never mentioned it.

Is there a standard way to share an gmail calendar without either a) or b)  ?

    No. You must log in to a gmail account to access the calendar.

    It's my understanding that Yahoo users can log in with their Yahoo credentials in order to view a google calendar.
