Date of Publication Metadata

When I insert the Data Of Publication into the HTML file and import to Sigil, Flight Crew doesn't like it.

I use m/d/yyyy format.

Code:
<meta name="dcterms.date  of publication" content="1/10/2011" />
This seems to be the same format that Sigil assigns in the Meta Editor.

Is this my error or a problem with Sigil?

The ISO format is YYYY-MM-DD, so try 2011-01-10. Maybe Sigil accepts a different format for input, but the ISO format is what should go into the OPF.

Sigil always writes the date in the OPF as the ISO standard requires, i.e. in YYYY-MM-DD. How the date is displayed in the Meta Editor is a different matter entirely. It's been while since I wrote the ME, but I think it displays the date according to the current locale, meaning that it will display differently on machines in Europe and machines in the USA. The underlying date is the same, of course.

HTML Meta statement
Code:
<meta content="1/10/2011" name="dcterms.date of publication" />
Sigil OPF Meta statement after initial loading
Code:
<dc:date opf:event="publication"></dc:date>
Obviously Flight Crew does not Like it.

Sigil OPF Meta statement after entry by Meta Editor
Code:
<dc:date opf:event="publication">2011-01-10</dc:date>
So, what would I use in the HTML to carry through to approval by Flight Crew?

crutledge, obviously the problem is that you're specifying the date incorrectly in the <meta> tag. You should use this:

Code:
<meta content="2011-01-10" name="dcterms.date of publication" />
You need to specify the date in the ISO format.

That did it.

I prefered "Congratulations Charlie" to "No Messages."
