I don't understand the importance of a date format. I consider the
USians prefere one format, the Asians maybe the other, here in Serbia we
like DD.MM.YYYY. (look at dots) or D.(or DD.) MMM (or more M's if
letters) YY.(or YYYY.) etc etc. Btw, who and when needs HOWTO dates to
sort, so they should appear as above?

My vote to adopt docbook to that in linuxdoc :-)
