Date format history - somewhere?
A couple of weeks ago I watched an ancestry-type show. Documents written in England in the 1600s apparently used the mm/dd/yyyy format back then. But now almost all European countries are using dd/mm/yyyy in their day to day communications. So I guess that's where the US format came from... And got stuck, after "the rest of the world' adopted dd/mm/yyyy as the regular date format
(sure, pedants will find exceptions, already highlighted in previous posts. But in general, i'm saying).
Interesting. Probably off topic. Still interesting.
