RE: [cdn-nucl-l] re: Year-2001-to-2031 Problem
I like the day / month / year format also -- but in addition, I try to
reduce the confusion by using Roman numerals for the month -- 11-IV-00.
...in the year 2011, April 11, it will NOT be confusing: 11-IV-11 (since
either side is correct), nor will other dates be confusing, unless one is
scheduling things for future years (up to 2031) or refering to past years
(back to 2001).
