            Bug ID: 25273
           Summary: Make datetime formats unambiguous
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec
          Assignee: dave.null@w3.org

The examples given for the datetime attribute of the time element use formats
like:
"<time>2011-11-12</time>"
However, both 11 and 12 fall within the range of months, so for those of us who
use different datetime formats in everyday life it is not clear which is the
month and which is the day. So change it to e.g. either:
2011-11-25 or 2011-25-11 whichever is the case.
