comment Seeking information regarding the use of a period between the day, month, and year formatting
It's in a few parts of Europe and in Britain as well. In Italy I've seen day, month as Roman numeral, year, so there's no confusion with the American system: 10.V.14.

@what If your normal speech sounds like you always have your nostrils clamped up, you may want to make an appointment with an ENT specialist. What you should be hearing is exactly what you spelled out in your answer above.

comment How to write a press release announcing my own appointment?
@MonicaCellio I wouldn't object to seeing it twice (once at the bottom where it supposed to be, once in the letter), but I would think it was silly and it was clearly someone who was forced to follow a corporate standard rather than be allowed to think about the content being presented.

@Ryan That would resolve the awkwardness, yes. You can format it as a block within the body of the release if you want to highlight it.
