Oh, and your third rule is broken... Do you want YYYY-DD-MM or YYYY-MM-DD?

Gak!

Exactly where is YYYY-DD-MM a legal date? AFAIK with regards to dates then if it starts with YYYY then it _always_ is in YYYYMMDD (with or without seperators).

Or were you just being pedantic about the ambiguity of 'YYYY'?

UPDATE
Well, i just did a google for YYYYDDMM, and there were a whole 169 hits. So that means there are a few fools actually using this format. And they even seem to be in the computer trade as well. Which to me is a bit of a scary thought. But then I did a google for 'YYYYMMDD' to discover some 103000 hits. So they are seriously outnumbered. Outnumbered enough to be overlooked I'd say. Thank god.
