Dates
The style in British English for dates is: date, month, year – e.g. 5 July 2012, with no commas or leading zeros, and must be used for global content. Where space requires, the first 3 letters of the month may be used, e.g. 25 Dec 2012.
Content intended only for local use may use local conventions eg. in the US, Nov 25, 2012.
