A fix for Google calDAV calendars nor showing up in iCal Apps
I synchronize my iCal and Google calendars using calDAV (based on these instructions). After getting everything running, I had a calDAV calendar in my iCal which was not showing up in the sidebar. The "account" was showing up (the stuff written in grey, capital letters, with a triangle next to it) but no calendar in the account. No error message, either.

The problem was that I was using non-ASCII characters in the name of the calendar (what a surprise). I changed it on the Google website, deleted the account in iCal, added it again, and voilà, now it shows as expected.

Not sure if this is linked to 10.5.5 or not; I just know it was at some point working, and that I had this problem for about a week or so. Hope this helps.

Seems like you can´t have special characters in any events either. I tested changing calendar name but it still won´t show up in iCal..

Let´s hope google fixes this issue soon.

Google, Google. There have been plenty of publish/subscribe solutions before Google.
For instance, the free, open source PHPiCalendar does handle accentuated characters, iCal publishings and additionally offers you very nice html views from any browser...
You can install it by a simple ftp on any server that accepts to run PHP, which at least here in Europe means also the one that comes with your ISP contract...
