I like to have dates as DD/MM/YY, as you can see from my website:
I really don't like MM/DD/YY. It simply doesn't make sense, as someone has already said -- a day is a smaller unit of measurement than a month. But I have to deal with MM/DD/YY a lot, so I guess I'm used to it. "A body can get used to anything . . ."Dates
I always put dates as DD/MM/YY unless otherwise stated. If you don't like this for some reason, then run the web pages through this perl script before you view them:
It swaps the first two parts of a date, converting DD/MM/YY to MM/DD/YY and vise versa.Code:perl -pe "s|(\d\d)/(\d\d)/(\d\d)|$2/$1/$3|g"
Again, if the date needs to be crystal clear I might put "March 2nd, 2004".
