Thanks for taking the time here. I've always found the calendar and
diary to be a bit "difficult".

But I didn't say anything about the diary insert functions available
from calendar. Specifically I called out:

 (calendar-date-string '(05 13 2013)) 
   => "Monday, May 13, 2013"

This is used by the Outlook integration I was referring to on the devel
list:

  https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2013-05/msg00067.html


The reason that function behaves like that is because the function is
supposed to be separately customized with calendar-date-display-form.


You're right, my emacs does have:

  calendar-date-style => 'european

so calendar-date-string should be expected to insert in that style
should it not?


I've tested from -Q and it all looks good, but that makes sense.

When you have:

  calendar-date-style => 'american

and no customization of:

  calendar-date-display-form 

then inserting dates with calender-date-string is fine.

But when you have:

  calendar-date-style => 'european

and no customization of:

  calendar-date-display-form 

then inserting dates with calender-date-string is not fine, it's broken
in the way I described.

Which means we should either tie calendar-date-style and
calendar-date-display-form together or nor use
calendar-date-display-form to insert directly into the diary?
