are you calling me a fetishist? ;)
I rely on last week searches for my company accounting, so for me it is a "must" feature

Well, outside of wondering whether "are the kids in school today?" what, actually, do you really care what day of the week it is? Aside from being stoned to death for working on the Sabbath, unless you're a publicly traded entity (or have a proper night-job), time is mutable for you work-at-home fetishists, and 7-days is 7-days no matter when you start counting them.

You did, after all, admit defeat by the annual DST-kerfuffle... so now you just claim indifference to deflect attention to it.

There's a pile of stones just waiting to be flung at all of us for one reason or another. :wink:

As Kilmatead indicated, with the "7 days."

Of course, you might not want specifically Sun-Sat, no matter what day of the week "today" is...

Which reminds me, for those who use Thunderbird as a client (and have not been sucked into MS' defective world), complex searches are easily accomplished within the Expression Search extension, which allows for all sorts of crazy search mechanics, including RegEx, as needed.

Notably, it's written by a user named "Wang Opera"... which, if that's a real name, has got to qualify as one of the best real names in the history of human culture. :D

Here is from Why does the week start on Sunday in some calendars and on Monday in others?:
North American calendars continue to use Sunday as the first day, while European calendars consider Monday the first day.
And from THE CALENDAR WEEK:
IS THERE AN OFFICIAL DEFINITION FOR THE CALENDAR WEEK?
Yes, there is. ISO 8601, which specifies Monday as the first day of the week.

DOES THE DEFINITION FOR THE CALENDAR WEEK APPLY INTERNATIONALLY?
Yes and no. Many countries use this approach. However, quite a number of other countries, such as the USA, Canada, Mexico and Australia, start their week on Sunday. Furthermore, the first calendar week always starts on the 1st of January, no matter which day of the week this happens to be.
