The Properties of each one-time-date are set in the dialog that is displayed when adding or modifying a One-Time-Date.

 

date

The date on which the current one-time event occurs.

name

Parts of, or the entirety of, one-time-date names can be set to bold, italics, underline, superscript, or any combination thereof.

If some part of a holiday name is formatted, it will be surrounded by the corresponding HTML tags, which can be manually edited, and an HTML preview pane will appear, giving a preview of the final result.

If you apply more than one formatting to some text, make sure that all formatting is fully withing other formatting. That is to say, any closing tag, such as </b> should always correspond to the most recently opened tag, in this case <b>.

You can click on the ellipsis button to open a larger editor.

priority

Use this setting to ensure that the current one-time date appears in the order you wish in the event of multiple occurrences of holidays within the Holidays sets of a given Holidays List. For more details, see ordering of holidays.
