Hi Ivan,
just a practical advice,

why not write JUL-24-2002 or like we did for years 24-JUL-2002
or 2002-JUL-24 like we have to do it now here in Eurpoe.
The trick is, if you use 4 numbers for the year and letters for the month,
everybody can interpret it correctly. ( Opposite 07-01-02 )

BTW. Metric is better, I can explain it to you and you will love it.
        In Germany we have still 50 Hz, but changed to mains from 220V to 230V.
        This is for the British, they had 240V and had to give as 10V.

Georg

I didn't say anything about time format.  You just assumed.
Is "OT" Off-Topic, or On-Topic.  Could be either!  You just assumed.

I'm not out to get the whole world to change to ISO-anything.
I'm out to get the entire world to change to the way I do things ;-)
You are right about the sorting order, though.  But any app I use for
sorting dates (Excel) can sort MM/DD/YY correctly anyway.

New slogan:  "What do you want to put in your Protel template title block
today?"
