International Sites: Minimum Requirements (08 Aug 2005)
For dates, the main guideline is: Always spell out the name of the month. Using a notation like 8/9 is confusing -- is that August 9th or the 8th of September? If you write "Aug. 9" people from all countries will understand it, and it requires only a few more characters. Far better than having customers show up at your hotel thirty days before or after their actual reservations.
