Multi Language Date and Time Display Issue

With some languages, the system date and time fields won't display correctly.

Has anyone experienced this before?

Here's what it looks like in English:

In Norwegian:

In Dutch:

Japanese works, though...:

The reason the date and time format can be different in different languages is the option to make time format and date format multi-language under the user interface localization property.

I wonder if you for some reason have gotten the incorrect characters you see on the MD4 display page entered in the date format for Norwegian and Dutch

Time format

h = hour, m = minute, s = second, t = am or pm
h = 12 hour, H = 24 hour
hh, mm, ss = leading zero
h, m, s = no leading zero
Example: HH:mm:ss = 15:04:31

Date format

y = year, M = month, d = day
y, M, d = no leading zero
yy, MM, dd = leading zero
yyyy = 4 digit year
MMM, ddd = short name (Jan, Mon)
MMMM, dddd = long name (January, Monday)
Example: dd/MMM/yy = 02/Nov/03


Aha! Yes! Someone put foreign characters into the date format parameters...

It works now after I fixed them.
