Yes, it should be OK...I would have to delve in old code but I know (way
back then) I fixed it for my own apps by including a function in my own
utility unit to do the local decoding, and I called that function, not
Delphi's, to pre-process date strings from an edit box. Why I am so sure
that Jason did fix this at some point long ago is that it was a real
problem for me back then, in IBO 3. Delphi changed its behaviour wrt to
date strings at (AFAIR) Delphi 4. Previous to that, it was "same old
Borland problem" - none of the Date functions was locale-sensitive then.
