Currently the Manage Bookmark dialog will display something like:
  History by Date
     Week of March 21, 1999
       Monday, March 22, 1999

We need to ensure this is localizable:
- The date string should be maintained internally in a canonical format
  (e.g. seconds from mm/dd/yyyy 00:00:00 GMT) and should format for
  display using the XPCom date&time APIs:
- In different cultures, weeks start on different days (e.g., Sun,
  Mon), so we cannot assume it will always start on Sunday!
- The phrase "Week of ..." must be localizable including possible
  word ordering differences.
- Related to the 2 above points, is "Week of ..." really useful?
  If we need something like that, maybe we should organize by Month
  which is much more generic.

Seems like this is related to bug #5871.

This really refers to the "history by date" folders. Updating title to reflect

Moved to M7 because of more important bugs.

History is generally just screwed up. Re-targeting to M8: I am supposed to be
re-writing history using MORK for this milestone.

milestone shuffle for history stuff.
Comment 6 User image Chris Waterson 1999-08-05 00:39:59 PDT
Fixed. Dates now stored as RDF date literals, which use RJC's generic (I18n
locale-based) date formatting routines.
