Not exactly.  According to the specification, you are supposed to  
follow ISO 8601, which allows optional hyphens and colons (and maybe  
other characters? I'm not sure), like so:

<abbr class="dtstart" title="2006-05-17T12:00">May 17, 2006 - 12:00</ 

Other than the T, I would think that should be comprehensible when  
read aloud.
