GNUmeric doesn't display the date in this format (it is up to the user
to pick what format is used), BUT it does require entering dates in
MM/DD/YYYY format.

- unless of course you have changed the locale...

Very confusing too. Took me ages to work out why dates like 28/5/2001
were getting interpreted as text strings, and not as dates.
