I'm using the English versions of and Windows XP (SP2). Both OOo
and Windows locale is set to Finnish.

The default templates that uses format dates as DD.MM.YY when you
enter a date in Calc or use Insert-Date in Writer. I believe this should be
changed to D.M.YYYY, which is much more common here. Both MS Word and MS Excel
default to D.M.YYYY as well. As it is, most Finnish users will have to edit the
templates to get dates show correctly by default.

Issue 30216 is somewhat related.
