      Description

      Clock applet uses the following hardcoded date/time format:

             formatter = new SimpleDateFormat ("EEE MMM dd hh:mm:ss yyyy",
                                                Locale.getDefault());

      Which places day-of-week first, then Month/day, time, then year. Even in English locale, this is a little bit strange.
