Imagine the following date: 02/04/03
Which does it mean?
2nd of April 2003 (European style)
4th of February 2003 (USA style)
3rd of April 2002
Your answer will depend, mostly, on which country you live in.
The international format tries to address all these problems by defining a numerical date system as follows: YYYY-MM-DD
For example, "3rd of April 2002", in this international format is written: 2002-04-03.
In which case 1234-05-06
May 6th 1234AD passed a long time ago.......
