Hi Wolfgang,

Thanks for the clarification about cont-new.mkiv.
The corrected cont-new.mkiv begins with


 {\edef\temp{\systemparameter\c!d}\scratchcounterone \ifx\temp\empty\normalday  \else\temp\fi
  \edef\temp{\systemparameter\c!m}\scratchcountertwo \ifx\temp\empty\normalmonth\else\temp\fi
\edef\temp{\systemparameter\c!y}\scratchcounterthree\ifx\temp\empty\normalyear \else\temp\fi}

\writestatus\m!system{beware: some patches loaded from cont-new.mkiv}

However I still get the wrong date with the example I sent, and Fabrice's example with \mainlanguage[fr], as well as with \mainlanguage[nl], gives an incorrect result (even though the result is correct with \mainlanguage[en]).

Best regards: OK
