    Default date/time localisation

    Hi, i've got a weird question (or feature request). I'm using iStat on Leopard now primarily for the date/time feature (i use the Dashboard Widget for the actual stats), and i've been messing with it and i can't seem to get the format to work the way i want.

    The issue is that i have sort of maybe a weird way that i want to format it: I want the date locale for the CLOCK to be different from the date locale for the SYSTEM. Specifically, i want to use the Dutch day abbreviations ('ma', 'di', 'wo', and so on), whilst keeping the rest of my system in English. I use the Windows application Tclock at work and it has this feature.

    I've been looking around in the prefPane contents and stuff and i don't see any localisation files, so i assume iStat is simply going by whatever the system's date format is set to. Is there any way to get around this? Or... could there be, in the future?

    Thanks!

    Yep for date & time we just use the users locale. We can probably add an option at some point for you though.
