Description Addison Phillips 2012-05-07 17:06:53 UTC Dates

The 'date' definition contains no time zone information. It is thus a floating date value and a health warning should be included about converting it to/from incremental time values.

Note that JavaScript is working on an I18N extension that will include time zone support.

This bug was cloned to create bug 17854 as part of operation convergence.
Comment 2 Travis Leithead [MSFT] 2014-02-07 22:38:05 UTC
My plan is to prepare a change that adds a non-normative health warning. I'll start working on the change for HTML5.1 and if it is acceptable, I will port the change back to HTML5.0 CR branch and resolve this bug.
Comment 3 Travis Leithead [MSFT] 2014-02-11 00:28:14 UTC
The health warning change has landed in 5.1. Please review:

The I18N WG is also satisfied by this. Closing the related issue in tracker.
