Concise statement of ISO 8601 advocacy (for suggestion to Apple)?
- Do you have -- or can you point to -- a concise, compelling
statement of why a software vendor should adopt ISO 8601 in their
In addition, can you offer suggestions as to why an operating
system vendor should support ISO 8601, and how they might best to do?
(For instance, should the vendor provide an easily selectable
"International date/time standard (ISO 8601)" option in a date
formats control panel or other such interface? Should they provide
application programming interfaces which include conversions between
other date formats and the ISO 8601 text formats? Or?)
I'd like to submit or adapt such a statement/suggestions in a
submission to Apple Computer, Inc.'s developer feedback address
regarding ISO 8601 support in Apple's forthcoming Macintosh operating
system, Mac OS X.
Many thanks in advance,
