Dear Calendar List:
One criticism of the Hanke-Hnery Calendar is that the months with 31 days are at the end of each quarter, whereas some would prefer the months with 31 days to be at the beginning of each quarter, as in the World Calendar, used with or without leap weeks. Yet, given that each quarter of the World Calendar begins on Sundays, whereas the current version of the HH Calendar begins each quarter on Mondays, they can both be used simultaneously as leap week calendars with a little trick of nomenclature.
The first days of each quarter of the World Calendar (with a leap week rule same as HH, and ISO 8601), can be Sundays, 0 January, 0 April, 0 July, and 0 October, which would correspond to Sunday, 31 December, 31 March, 31 June, and 31 September in the HH Calendar. Both calendars would be the same, except for the 4 overlapping Sundays. And, this would be the least disruptive to workday schedules, as most people have Sunday either as a day off, or part of a weekend.
Another way, slightly more complex, but useful without completely modifying the current Gregorian Calendar, is to use my alternative month names for the current version of the HH Calendar (with Monday quarter starts), with 0 Janum, 0 Aprilum, 0 Julum, and 0 Octum, in place of 31 Decum, 31 Marchum, 31 Junum, and 31 Septum, which are described here in the Calendar Wikia:
Dear Walter and Calendar People
Monday 1 has the disadvantage of occurring within a month.
