Synopsis

$date-date-format := '[D01] [MNn,*-3] [Y0001]'
$date-dateTime-format := '[H01]:[m01] [D01] [MNn,*-3] [Y0001]'

Description

The most convenient format for storing dates that will be machine processed: sorted, indexed, etc, is ISO 8601. When publishing these dates, it’s often desirable to use a different format, one more familiar to readers.

A pubdate that conforms to an ISO 8601 date (“yyyy-mm-dd”) will be formatted with the $date-date-format; one that conforms to an ISO 8601 dateTime (“yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss”) will be formatted with the $date-dateTime-format.
