Subject: Arthur Dent born in May?
Date: Tue, 30 Jun 2009 11:27:22 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <34B26037-8DFC-4F02-8850-9D5F27D048C7@nf.mpg.de> (raw)

Hello,

this might be an important glitch in org-mode's documentation:

%%(diary-anniversary 14 5 1956) Arthur Dent is %d years old

probably should read

%%(diary-anniversary 05 14 1956) Arthur Dent is %d years old

if Douglas Adams had May in mind for Mr Dent.

So according to the Emacs documentation the format is "month day year"  
which feels distinctly alien to me (I am used to "day month year"). Is  
there another way to have the same functionality with a different date  
format?

Warm regards,
  Stefan
