Hi Brodie,

ISO dates are a relatively new addition to JavaScript in ECMAScript 5 
(section and will not work in all browsers. I can’t give you a 
breakdown, but amongst others (iirc) I know that the iOS JavaScript 
implementation can not parse it. To be honest I thought IE would have a 
problem with it as well (but I guess not).

Either way, the most compatible date parsing format is RFC822 used in ES3:

   Mon, 25 Dec 1995 13:30:00 GMT+0430

I would recommend you use this one.
