ISO 8601 is the international standard for the representation of dates and times.
Example (Complete date)
The computed date will be relative to your time zone. Depending on your time zone, the result above will vary between March 24 and March 25.
It can be written without specifying the day (YYYY-MM):
Example (Year and month)
Time zones will vary the result above between February 28 and March 01.
It can be written without month and day (YYYY):
Example (Only year)
Time zones will vary the result above between December 31 2014 and January 01 2015.
It can be written with added hours, minutes, and seconds (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS):
Example (Complete date plus hours, minutes, and seconds)
The T in the date string, between the date and time, indicates UTC time.
UTC (Universal Time Coordinated) is the same as GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).
Short dates are most often written with an "MM/DD/YYYY" syntax like this:
Month is written before day in all short date and ISO date formats.
Leading Zero WARNING !
In most browsers, ISO dates with months or days with no leading zeroes will be interpreted as short dates:
Long dates are most often written with a "MMM DD YYYY" syntax like this:
Month and day can be in any order:
And, month can be written in full (January), or abbreviated (Jan):
Commas are ignored. Names are case insensitive:
Full Date Format
|UTC||Coordinated Universal Time|

|PDT||(US) Pacific Daylight Time|
|EST||(US) Eastern Standard Time|

When getting a date, without specifying the time zone, the result is converted to the browser's time zone.
In other words: If a date/time is created in GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), the date/time will be converted to CDT (Central US Daylight Time) if a user browses from central US.
