	// Inland Revenue defined Week 1 as 6-12 April inclusive, Week 2 13-19 inclusive etc.
	// NB Day of week has NO bearing on week number - tax week may start on ANY day
	// first, stamp the supplied date
	$now=mktime(0,0,0,$mm,$dd,$yy);
	// next, see where april first is for supplied year
	$apryy=$yy;
	$apr6=mktime(0,0,0,4,6,$apryy);
	if ($apr6>$now){
		// we are in jan-apr, so apr1 needs to be prev year
		$apryy--;
	}
	$apr6=mktime(0,0,0,4,6,$apryy);
	// now how many weeks have elapsed between w1start and now ?
	$elapsed=($now-$apr6)/86400;
	$w=sprintf("%0.2f",$elapsed/7);
	$wf=floor($w)+1; // not cel, as breaks boundaries
	return $wf;
