Re: NSDateFormatter issue

Hi Niels (also also Stefan, who replied offline),

I tried changing the order of the setters, but that did not appear to make a 
difference.  I also tried calling the setter methods instead of setting the 
ivars:

[dateFormatter setTimeStyle:NSDateFormatterMediumStyle];

rather than 

dateFormatter.timeStyle = NSDateFormatterMediumStyle; 

However, I'm still getting the incorrect format.  The code in NSDateFormatter 
seems fine to me, too (this is the 1.24.8 codeline).  But I still get:

dateStr = 20010102 09:00 AM, refStr = Jan 2, 2001, 9:00:00 AM

I will keep digging into it.

Thank you for the help so far,

David
