I'm confused about the value of FORMAT in {{{date(FORMAT)}}}.

I wanted to use "%B %e, %Y", but I have two problems.  With the
quotes, I get an "eval: End of file during parsing" message.  Without
the quotes, processing stops at the comma, expanding to "May 14"
instead of "May 14, 2009".

Thanks,
  -Dale

(Apologies about answering my own mails and all that.)

Using "\x2c" instead of "," seems to work nicely.

So {{{date(%B %e\x2c %Y)}}} gives me what I was looking for.

Wow, I knew this report was coming, but I had not at all
expected it so fast.

"," is the (undocumented) argument separator for Org macros.
Actually, I am changing it now to ";", so that your example
should now directly work.  To include a semicolon in the date
format, use "\;".

Actually, I am changing it back to ",", this is more natural,
please escape "," like "\'" after your next update from  git....
