But this document still references the old first edition! The one that
counted accidentally minutes from 01 to 60 and similar nonsense, along
with lots of ambiguities:
[ISO8601] "Data elements and interchange formats -- Information
interchange -- Representation of dates and times", ISO
8601:1988(E), International Organization for
Standardization, June, 1988.
The new second edition with lots of bug fixes, ISO 8601:2000, has been
available since December and can be ordered online from
