 Are both formats (with and without colon) valid for ISO8601, or is the
 documentation for the method date() wrong?

Yes:

Hi, Alessandro

Would it be worth noting somewhere, that these two implementations of
ISO8601 differ? Because I needed the DateTime::ATOM way to save the
timezone ... Even so the other one was also about ISO 8601 ...

My system is working towards a search-engine called ElasticSearch.
This one makes use of a Java method to format a date. This one is
defined here:
http://joda-time.sourceforge.net/api-release/org/joda/time/format/ISODateTimeFormat.html#dateOptionalTimeParser%28%29

The definition for a time-offset is defined like this:
offset= 'Z' | (('+' | '-') HH [':' mm [':' ss [('.' | ',') SSS]]])

Is there a format, you know of, that makes this difference (colon or
not) bullet-prove?
Bye,
Simon
