Talking about pushing things up stream, it seems to me that a date is  
such a fundamental thing, and the display of it as text is so  
location (and user-preference) specific, that there really ought to  
be a standard way of representing it in HTML/XHTML which _requires_  
the browser to render the date in the user's local format.

One shouldn't need to resort to javascript and tool tips!
