    Re: The "Online Nautical Almanac (UPDATED)" to accept dates in the ISO-8601 format?

    Hi Tony,

    Yes. Anything is possible. :) Can you suggest some scenarios where this would be beneficial? Have you tried entering various formats in the date field in my web apps? They allow quite a few options. For example if you enter "23 n", the apps display data for November 23, 2021. Or if you enter "14 jan 2023", you get data for January 14, 2023. If you enter "2000 juillet 12", you get almanac data for July 12, 2000. Or "17-11-1899" yields data for November 17, 1899. And so on. 

    All of the web apps use the same date parsing code. For reference, here's a list:
