resolved issues

  • How should dates before the common era be marked up? Andy Mabbett
    • What are the use-cases? Link to *-examples page? - Tantek
  • If a web page is created or edited by a non-technical human, it is unfriendly to expect them to work in ISO date format. Charles Belov
    • ISO dates are more readable/usable by people globally than any one locale-specific format, thus it is more friendly globally to use and ask humans to edit ISO 8601 dates than asking them to try to read/write all the odd and quirky locale-specific formats. - Tantek
