All examples use example date 1996-04-22 / 22 April 1996 / April 22, 1996 – except where a single-digit day is illustrated.

Basic components of a calendar date for the most common calendar systems:

Y – year
M – month
D – day

Order of the basic components:

Bbig-endian (year, month, day), e.g. 1996-04-22
Llittle-endian (day, month, year), e.g. 22.04.96 or 22/04/96 or 22 April 1996
Mmiddle-endian (month, day, year), e.g. 04/22/96 or April 22, 1996

Specific formats for the basic components:

yy – two-digit year, e.g. 96
yyyy – four-digit year, e.g. 1996
m – one-digit month for months below 10, e.g. 4
mm – two-digit month, e.g. 04
mmm – three-letter abbreviation for month, e.g. Apr
mmmm – month spelled out in full, e.g. April
d – one-digit day for days below 10, e.g. 2
dd – two-digit day, e.g. 02

Separators of the components:

"/" – slash
"." – dots or full stops
"-" – hyphens or dashes
" " – spaces
