"Add to Google calendar" link examples create incorrect end date

Using the "Let people save an individual event from your site" page, putting start and end dates of, say, 4/10/2013 and 4/14/2013, then pasting the resulting link into another browser window will create a Google calendar event with correct start date but wrong end date (shows 4/13/2013).

Happens consistently, so until there's an explanation or fix, we're adding 1 day to our end dates before coding links for "add to Google calendar".

BTW, the resulting URL created from our example is:

Another oddity, just tried the same "Let people save an event" link from above without an end date, and the event didn't get created at all. So it seems an end date is required, and also it has to have 1 day added to it so that shows up correctly.

It's conceivable that the end-date problem is with the (correct) use of the 8601 format. 20130414 is midnight on the 14th UTC (pka GMT, e.g. London). If you are in the US, that is before midnight.

Try a date and time either specifying the time zone or offset by your TZ.
