Just a small, very very small request. And completely off the point ...

Could people posting dates please remember to use a country neutral form like:

	Feb 1
or	1st Feb

Those in the `second' (or down here in the `third' world a.k.a. Banana
Republic) think that 2/1 is the 2nd of Jan.

Oh, so confused ...

PS: Interestingly, when completing a (white card) application for entry
into the `first' world one is required to write all dates in the form:
Day/Month/Year.  And yes, they let me in ....
