I'm interested in the comment #6: the correct way to do it is not really %x and %X, but an user defined format, due to space constraints and the fact that neither %x nor %X have a fixed format. What those escape prints is left to the implementation, IIRC. This said, changing the current strings to use %x is easy and I can do it, but implementing a date format chooser is another story. I'm not very motivated with graphical user interfaces... The %x solution may not be perfect but I think it is a good starting point. It is better than what it is now (overused translator) and uses the correct locale category. Thanks a lot for giving us the right Bug ID :) Raúl "DervishD" Núñez de Arenas Coronado -- Linux Registered User 88736 | http://www.dervishd.net It's my PC and I'll cry if I want to... RAmen!
