This can result in dates that are impossible to understand correctly without knowing the writer's origin and/or other contextual details, as dates such as "10/11/06" can be interpreted as "10 November 2006" in the DMY format, "October 11, 2006" in MDY, and "2010 November 6" in YMD.
For both French and sometimes English speakers, DMY are used (dd-mmm-yyyy) (Example: 9 April 2019/le 9 avril 2019) and also used in formal letters, academic papers, military, many media companies and even some governmental documents, particularly in French-language ones.
New Sabah Times and The Rakyat Post mainly use DMY, The Star originally used MDY before it changed to DMY after their website revamp; in contrast, New Straits Times changed from DMY to MDY.
yyyy; leading zeroes and century digits may be omitted, e.g., ; ddmmyy (six figures, no century digits, no delimiters) allowed in tables.
Though not yet a common practice, the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) of the Government of India introduced the standard named "IS 7901 (Revised in 2006) Data Elements And Interchange Formats – Information Interchange – Representation Of Dates And Times" which officially recommends use of the date format YYYYMMDD, for example, 20130910 or 2013 09 10, or 2013-09-10 for the date 10 September 2013; in the language Bodo in date format MM/DD/YYYY.
