Displaying a formatted range of dates

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Sometimes, often in weeklies, you wish to present a range of dates with some specific formatting rules. These rules may come from the languages used :

 

From Monday June 23rd to Sunday June 29th 1999 (English)
Du lundi 23 juin au Dimanche 29 juin (French).
Von Montag Juni 23. Bis Sonntag Juni 29. (German)

 

Or they may come from a wish to make the token smart by not repeating duplicate information, such as the month or year. Whatever the cause you are faced with the need to do more than replace a single token, you must format a series of tokens.
