format of date strings

I went over the current issue and fixed up the date strings.

I noticed previously that there were two types in use:

  Sunday the 28th of March 2008


  on June 1st, 2008.

Neither of these is common in English, and the second version is
very US-centric.

I have now corrected all occurrences to this format:

  [Sunday, ]28 March 2008

which is unambiguous.

I would suggest we adopt this format into our style guidelines.
