I have a number of events listed in an HTML table:
          <td class="format"><a href="#" class="external">Talk Like a 
Pirate Day</a></td>
          <td>September 19</td>
          <td class="last">Charleston, SC</td>
        <tr class="alt">
          <td class="format"><a href="#" class="external">Event Number 
          <td>October 19&#8211;22</td>
          <td class="last">City, State</td>
          <td class="format"><a href="#" class="external">Event Number 
          <td>November 11&#8211;13</td>
          <td class="last">City, State</td>

I would like to apply the style - .past { text-decoration: line-through; 
} -  to the events that have already occurred/past.  Ideally, each 
<td>'s content would get the style applied if it's date had past.  Is 
there a way to do this using PHP - a simple, not-super-genius-like 
approach would be best as I am still learning PHP.

More importantly, if there is a (preferably PHP) calendar app. (I know 
I've read about a bunch, but I am not PHP savvy enough to pick the best 
of the bunch) that I can use to handle this, that would probably be 
better.  The most important thing would be ease of use from an 
administration and end user perspective, and the ability to adapt the 
look/feel of the site the calendar/event organizer will go into.

Simply put, I need a better way to maintain calendar/events type 
information on a single page.
