Bah... sorry about that! Accidental tab right before a space sends away!

Anyway, the point is that the repeater is built if there's any
repetition frequency/interval. You also capture the "until" into
rrend. So, the first date is going to feature a +unit, and this code
adds the end:

        else if (rrend != "")
            date = date ">--<" rrend

I just commented out both sections that add a "-- <date2>", the other
checking for time2 being "". Is that the correct way to go about this?

If so, no need to update. I'll just leave those commented out.

Out of curiosity, how *is* the rrend code supposed to be handling
these? Or what's the use case for building a <date1 +unit>--<date2>?
