I thought I'd give "todo-mode" a try.  But, I still can't make the
"todo" entries  show up in the calendar ...  note that I've been using
the calendar/diary package itself for many years ... nice!

Here's what I'm doing with emacs-21.2.1.  Among other things, my
.emacs contains:

    (setq diary-file "~/.diary")
    (add-hook 'diary-display-hook  'fancy-diary-display)

The first line of my ".diary" file is:

    #include "~/.todo-do"     { also tried "/home/khj/.todo-do" }

And the above file contains:

    -*- mode: todo; todo-categories: ("Todo" "Todo" "Todo"); -*-
    */* --- Todo
    */* 2002-09-15 20:32 khj: get todo-mode to work!
    --- End

Typing "M-x calendar", however, shows my ".diary" entries just as before.

Shouldn't I see the "get todo-mode to work!" as well?

Most likely I'm just forgetting something (though I have read 'info'
pages and the "todo-mode.el" source).

Thanks for any help,
