-This plugin implements the [[ikiwiki/directive/calendar]] [[ikiwiki/directive]].
+This plugin provides a [[ikiwiki/directive/calendar]] [[ikiwiki/directive]].
 The directive displays a calendar, similar to the typical calendars shown on
 some blogs.
+
+Since ikiwiki is a wiki compiler, to keep the calendar up-to-date,
+wikis that include it need to be preiodically refreshes, typically by cron
+at midnight. Example crontab:
+
+       0 0 * * * ikiwiki -setup ~/ikiwiki.setup -refresh
+
+## CSS
+
+The output is liberally sprinkled with classes, for fine grained CSS
+customization.
+
+* `month-calendar` - The month calendar as a whole.
+* `month-calendar-head` - The head of the month calendar (ie,"March").
+* `month-calendar-day-head` - A column head in the month calendar (ie, a

+  are the current day, respectively.
+* `Sunday`, `Monday`, `Tuesday`, ... - Each day square is also given a class
+  matching its  (localised) day of week, this can be used to highlight
+  weekends.
+* `year-calendar` - The year calendar as a whole.
+* `year-calendar-head` - The head of the year calendar (ie, "2007").

+  without, in the future, and currently selected, respectively.
