1388RE: [ISO8601] do you have the exact ISO-8601 specification.
- Sep 28, 2005Laziness?
I'm in the UK and, for me, time isn't an everyday factor - just date.
I use ISO-8601 format and most people just think I'm weird.
I try to use computer sorting as a "sales aid" but it's pretty much a waste
of time. :-(

I really wonder about it as well.I'm an American (M/d/yy h:mm AM/PM
still in largest use here), and many people here that I know see no
point in changing their backward system to YYYY MM DD AM/PM HH:mm
(AM/PM before time, use zero instead of 12 for AM/PM first hour, makes
most sense, as used in Japan, China, & Korea sometimes) at the bare
minimum, let alone 24-h time, SI/metric, always using international
notation for phone numbers, using ISO 3166 geographical codes, and
using ISO 4217 (currency codes) along side it...
