dialect of US or international?


The more or less official format for dates in US is "mm/dd/yyyy". LQ uses "mm-dd-yyyy", which is, we say, "no meat, nor fish"

May I suggest the use of ISO 8601: "yyyy-mm-dd" possibly "yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm"?

Personally, I prefer day/month/year. The way it is supposed to be.

LQ uses the format you tell it to use.....

Edit Options -> Date & Time Options -> Date Format (ISO 8601 being one of the options to choose from).
