That looks really useful, Bhante, and there's some discussion of how the calendars are worked out in the links.

However, it's a little disappointing that the half-moon days are not shown.

I create my calendars using data from this web site with some adjustments where necessary to fit the 15/14 day limitation. My dates don't seem to agree completely with any of those calendars, but are almost the same as the Myanmar Calendar dates.

The half moons are easy to work out. They are always 8 days from the preceding full-moon or new moon.
