mm/dd/yy is mainly a US thing. Here in Canada, we are as usual unsure whether to follow
the example of the US or Britain, so one encounters both mm/dd/yy and dd/mm/yy. Needless
to say, this leads to ambiguity and confusion, which is one reason why I almost always
used long form dates whenever possible.
