Having lived and served in Canada for some years, I can attest that the
possibility for confusion exists. The people up there, at least where I was,
wrote the date/month/year. To me, seeing a date written 23/10/84 was very odd
but not confusing; the confusion came when scheduling an event some months
ahead to, say, 08/06/99!

On the other hand, this is a group that cannot agree on how to represent chi,
and ksi so convention is one thing, enforcement is something else again.

Good luck on that one!
