Any calendar, reminder, booking etc. site.

> as opposed to at the time of display

The problem may be that you think of a date as a string (to display). It's not.
It has a *meaning*. A date is a point (or range) in time, and may be acted upon
by the site/server. Please go back to comment 5 and think through it from the
perspective of the server programmer.
