10.7: iCal Reminders Lists displayed separately from Calendars Apps
In previous versions of iCal, calendar items and to-do items (reminders) were contained in the same calendar container. In Lion, they are separated into Calendars and Reminders Lists.

To see the Reminders Lists, click on the word 'Reminders' above the list of reminder items on the right side of the screen. To create a new Reminders List, select File » New Reminders List.

You may have a Calendar and a Reminders List with the same name. But you can also have Calendars and Reminders Lists which are only displayed in the one place.

When I upgraded from MobileMe to iCloud, I thought some of my calendars had disappeared, except the reminders from those calendars still appeared in the list. These were special calendars I had that only contained reminders. Then I clicked on 'Reminders' and discovered that they were listed separately.

"You may have a Calendar and a Reminders List with the same name."

No, you may not! Try it, and it won't let you!

I do have Calendars and Reminder Lists with the same names "Work" and "Home". However, the name "Deadlines" is only allowed in one or the other. So the same name is okay in certain cases. Odd.
