Dates on the Wiki pages

since everyone is editting at the moment... may I suggest
standardising dates on the wiki to ISO 8601 coding, or yyyy-mm-dd. See for more information for what
I summarize below.

It seems that most of the world does _not_ use the mm/dd/yyyy
convention currently used on the Wiki, and it can create lots of
misunderstandings, especially when talking about low days in low
months (does 06-07-08 mean sixth of july or seventh of june?).
20080706 is clearer and much less troublesome to understand.
yyyy-dd-mm doesn't seem to be in use worldwide at all (whew!), so it
can safely be ignored.
