Er, why doesn’t HTML5 just use ISO 8601?
Why the HELL have they gone and invented their own datetime specification?
- ISO8601 does not define how to handle invalid strings for example
- ISO8601 actually allows three different forms for the date
Thanks to #whatwg guys for informing me. Again.
The same reasoning could be applied to XSD dates.
