Date formatting


I noticed a date format change you made to James Brown, from "[[December 25]] [[2006]]" to "[[2006-12-25]]". I'd suggest that the latter format is not ideal in the text of an article (as opposed perhaps to a formal, footnoted citation) because it's not very prose-friendly for anonymous users (the majority of readers and even editors here), whose lack of preference settings forces dates to be displayed without formatting. Just something to consider. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 15:10, 15 February 2007 (UTC)Reply
