Commands to Add to the Diary
----------------------------

   While in the calendar, there are several commands to create diary
entries:

`i d'
     Add a diary entry for the selected date (`insert-diary-entry').

`i w'
     Add a diary entry for the selected day of the week
     (`insert-weekly-diary-entry').

`i m'
     Add a diary entry for the selected day of the month
     (`insert-monthly-diary-entry').

`i y'
     Add a diary entry for the selected day of the year
     (`insert-yearly-diary-entry').

   You can make a diary entry for a specific date by selecting that date
in the calendar window and typing the `i d' command.  This command
displays the end of your diary file in another window and inserts the
date; you can then type the rest of the diary entry.

   If you want to make a diary entry that applies to a specific day of
the week, select that day of the week (any occurrence will do) and type
`i w'.  This inserts the day-of-week as a generic date; you can then
type the rest of the diary entry.

   You can make a monthly diary entry in the same fashion.  Select the
day of the month, use the `i m' command, and type rest of the entry.
Similarly, you can insert a yearly diary entry with the `i y' command.

   All of the above commands make marking diary entries.  If you want
the diary entry to be nonmarking, give a prefix argument to the command.
For example, `C-u i w' makes a nonmarking, weekly diary entry.

   When you modify the diary file, be sure to save the file before
exiting Emacs.
