Actually, large fractions of the world use the much more sensible (and
far more sortable) yyyy-mm-dd format (or yyyy/mm/dd, or yyyy.mm.dd, or
whatever - the separators are probably the least important part).
Most of these places, I note, have cultures that go back more than a
century or two, and thus have learned to use more than two digits for
year numbers. :)
Or, at least, large fractions of the Gregorian-calendar world. I don't
know what written date formats are used by the peoples that use the
Jewish, or Moslem, or Hindu, or Chinese, or Buddhist, or etc, calendars.
