I earlier posted a message about using hyphens (not dashes) in date and time
notation.
I claimed standards support for this, but was unable to quote the standards.
They are: ANSI T1.232-1996, which cites and follows CCITT Recommendation
Z.316,
and ISO 8601 International Standard Date and Time Notation

The following info on ISO 8601 is excellent:

Psssssssst.
You can score points with engineers by being able to refer to standards,
especially
standards that they formally adhere to. Part of our role as user advocates
too.
