Should "N.S" link to a particular calendar? If so, which one? Leaving the abbreviation is somewhat confusing, and "New Style" doesn't explain much to those of us (ahem) who don't know too much. —magda 17:39, 2 Jul 2005 (EDT)

I added links. "O.S." and "N.S." used to be much more frequently seen abbreviations in English literature, but of course as English speakers have forgotten that they were ever on another calendar and stopped talking about things older than last week, one doesn't see them much any more. —Dcn.

Still confused about dates...

I find I'm still a little confused about the date of St. John's death. What was the date of his death on the Gregorian calendar?

St. John's death was on 2 july on the gregorian caledar Arthasfleo 10:47, January 10, 2007 (PST)
