Date formats in Canada confuse me, and judging by the article in ComputerWorld
that I was just reading, I'm not alone. Apparently the writer looked at "over 50 documents from 40 different organizations, only about 25 per cent had printed dates that were completely unambiguous". Worse than that, some organisations (e.g. Canadian Tire, RBC Royal Bank) "use different [date] formats on different documents"!
Which date format(s) do you use? (dd=day, mm=month number, MMM=month name, yy=year, ccyy=century+year) (Ignore whether the separator is / or - or something else for now)
something else (tell me more in the comments)
Where do you live? (I think the UK and USA have de facto standard formats - it's Canada that I think is indecisive, but let's see)
Do you think it would be clearer if everyone adopted a single format of dd-MMM-yyyy, for example 30-MAR-2008 ?
no (tell me why in the comments)
