LaTeX dates in Australian format

The \LaTeX macro \today presents dates in US format, which can be annoying when you want dates to be typeset in Australian or universal formats. Use the following macros to typeset dates in Australian format.

% Format date in the form 12 March 2007, for example.
\usepackage{datetime}
\newdateformat{auDateFormat}{%
  \twodigit{\THEDAY}~\monthname[\THEMONTH]~\THEYEAR
}
\auDateFormat

To get the universal format, simply re-arrange the day, month and year components to conform to yyyy-mm-dd.
