Behold the [non-fa-IR default] PersianCalendar class

From the MSDN Feedback Center....

The title is simple enough: Jalaali Calendar should be default calendar for fa-IR culture.

Well, maybe.

I mean, it makes sense to me.

And the site is tracking it as a top issue, I guess since people agree with the idea, and all....

(This a calendar I have discussed before, in this post)

But there is a problem here....

The fa-IR locale exists in Windows, and the Jalaali Calendar does not, at this time.

(Once it is added and this update is made, we can look forward to this other issue coming up again, for a new culture and calendar!)

But for now, the data always starts from Windows, so until/unless the calendar is added to Windows (including a constant in winnls.h and so on!), it can't be the default in the culture....

There is no letter پ in Arabic. There is پ in Urdu and Farsi languages though.

The Unicode character name refers to the Arabic script. :-)
