comment Calendar with TikZ; only print week days
Just tried this and worked wonderfully. I added it to every calendar/.style={..., if={(weekend) [shape=coordinate]}, ... } so that I didn't have to add it to every instance. Fantastic and clever solution!

comment Calendar with TikZ; only print week days
Awesome! I had tried using if(weekend) and just passing no argument, hoping it would do nothing... but I think it defaults to doing "nothing" in the sense of "nothing other than what it was going to do anyway." I'll try this after lunch and accept if successful. Thanks a ton!

comment Is setting every node style anchor compatible with relative positioning in TikZ?
So above sets the anchor to .south and right sets it to .west, correct? And this puts it below node.west and sets the anchor of the node being placed to .west as well. I'm still not entirely grasping passing multiple placement options, and didn't see them combined in the manual, but nevertheless, this is definitely what I was looking for! Thanks!

Could you explain what this is doing? I didn't see the right alignment in the TikZ manual for all of the relative positioning options... looks like it works, though!

Just to be clear, the answer is "No," right? I have to set the anchor for each node manually since it's overridden by below=of...?

comment Is setting every node style anchor compatible with relative positioning in TikZ?
I'm thinking I answered my own question. Found this as I was scanning the manual: If you use relative coordinates together with automatic anchor coordinates, the relative coordinates are computed relative to the node's center, not relative to the border point. If there's a way to do this (like override the setting, or use some automatic math to adjust based on half the width of each node...), I'd still like to know.
