Is there some reason that the only way to link a date is do the awkward cardinal numbering format? 21st July is nowhere near s universal in English (even in British) usage as 21 July. Are there objections to at least creating redirects for the ordinal approach? CzechOut | 22:25, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Regarding dates on printed material, I have always tried (I think) to replicate the date that appeared on the publication where appropriate but should add, that often dates have been 'corrected' to fit in with a particular style and I may have adopted the later convention in order to save a rewrite by someone else.
