This is supremely beside the point.

When data is displayed on a page, the user doesn't (shouldn't) care
where it originates. There should be no difference in formatting between
dates that are manually entered or dates that are dynamically generated.
As far as the user is concerned, both are simply dates.

(If your page echoes the HTTP header for web developers, that may be a
different issue - here we are talking about pages for end users).
