Re: 1179: "ISO 8601"

This might be in closer relation to spoken languages:
In English you say d-th of m, evening in June, summer of 68.
In Hungarian we say the other way around, so the standard date makes sense.

"ISO 8601"

In my country we write dates this way.
Interestingly, because of the EU, on food we have to print expiration dates as DD-MM-YY(YY), because the rest of Europe uses that format and using both leads to confusion.
Bottom line: EU has a bug.
