ISO 8601 suggests writing date-and-times like 2005-09-26T12:34:56 - using 
a T as the separator between date and time. I don't really like the look 
of it, but it is a standard, so i'd suggest using it.

Bear in mind that if you don't, a black-helicopter-load of blue-helmeted 
goons to come and apply the rubber hose argument to you.
