Oops. You are correct. Thank you for the correction.

Yes, but I believe that the design specification for timestamps should
allow for a full ISO8601 to eventually be implemented even if only a
subset is provided initially. Choosing a syntax that would make it
difficult to add parts of the ISO8601 format later would be a bad
idea.

I have not been paying close enough attention to what java APIs exist.
I believe that the PERL HTTP::Date module has one in the parse_date
function... It was written by Gisle Aas, but I do not know how full the
implementation is at this time.
