      <h1>Calendar token (.ICS file) Generator in browser</h1>
      <p>This jquery program will generate a .ICS file for distribution via various digital mediums that is compatible with major calendar programs. This is specifically built for distributing Outlook calendar tokens with only the essential fields required. This program works within the browser 100% and your file is created and saved locally.</p>
      <p><strong>Note:</strong> When viewed in calendar programs the event time is shown according to the user's local time zone. (e.g. 5pm in Las Vegas is 2 hours behind Chicago and the event will show as 7pm when viewed in a calendar in Chicago). Be sure to double check the file local to the timezone.</p>

        <small>Overwrite this if updating a pre-existing ICS file or event. Otherwise users will have two events (though named the same) saved to their calendar program. If lost, open the pre-existing ICS file with Notepad/Textedit and look for "UID:" line 16.</small>
