Update mostly fixed the problem of strange localised timestamps in emails. However, the problem is not completely solved yet. Weekdays are capitalised, although they shouldn't be.

For example, in the Dutch (community) translation it says "Op Donderdag […]". It should say "Op donderdag […]", with uncapitalised weekdays.

I'm curious @nthn, why shouldn't the name of the weekdays be capitalised?, it is my understanding that days, months, and holidays are always capitalized as these are proper nouns :)

@Edz, depends on language. In Finnish we are expected to write weekdays, months, holidays, nations/ethnicities and languages in small. "Third monday in january, about a month after christmas, some swedes came speaking swedish..."

The holiday card people keep fighting back though.

@Edz: as @teemu said, English is one of very few languages where anything other than a proper name is capitalised. Off the top of my head, the only other language I can think of that capitalises weekdays is German. Hence the 'localization' tag. Too true about the holiday card people, btw.

Ping @sledges, this remains an issue now that the community translations have been made official. @martonmiklos, do you have the same problem in Hungarian?

Ack @nthn

Where should I check this exactly? In the emails list at the day breaks?
