Hi Gergi,
We really don't use the week numbers in the US the same way that they are
used in Europe. It took some time for me to get used to remembering which
week I was in when I moved to Norway. That is probably why the weeks are
defined as 7 day periods from the 1st of the year.

I have a question: How are numbered weeks in U.S.?
Example
This year (1997) in Czech calendar:
Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun
I 1 2 3 4 5
II 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
III 13 14 15 16 17 18 19
...
(In Czech Republic week begins on Monday)
It means second week begins on Jan 6.
I think in U.S. (Weeks start on Sunday) second week begins on Jan 5. Is it
true?
BUT!
OmniGO says: second week starts on Jan 8 (Wednesday).
It means that week numbers are counted by numbers of days from begin of an
year.

Is it an error in Ogo or the way how you are number weeks in U.S.?
