And one which I feel is In this context I don't mind, it's the timestamp storage that shouldn't change. I lost that detail in the mail trace. It's something to make clear and will likely cause confusion among users too. Detlef, the dot notation is from DIN 1355 and DIN 5008. It was changed to use colons in 1995 to match ISO 8601. There are still many traditionalists and old documents. Look for phrases like "6.30 Uhr" in old documents. You will find a lot like that. I didn't like the dot notation and agreed with the 1995 change, but it's still a reality. -- Robert Horn email@example.com
