 ISO 8601   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
On a global and international medium such as the Internet, local conventions such as these can cause confusion, and unambiguous forms such as the ISO 8601 format can be seen to be preferable.
Dates prior to 999 are written as, for example, 0487-09-11 for September 11 in the year 487.
BC dates are offset by one in order to obtain zero-based dates, so -0487-09-11 is September 11 in the year 488 BC rather than 487 BC, as might be supposed.

 The Jakarta Post - India Diaspora
The Aryans who migrated to the Indian subcontinent around 2,000 years ago ushered in the Vedic era which gave to the land the Rig Veda, and many of the important gods, hymns and rituals of Hinduism, as also abiding social and family systems.
The spiritual foundations of Indian culture were laid during the later Vedic period (1000-600 BC), when doctrines such as transmigration of the soul, and the search for release from the cycle of rebirth were introduced, and the three other Vedas, Yajur, Sama and Atharva, were composed.
Apart from being a golden age for literature, arts and architecture, these periods also saw the emergence of the two great Indian epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, in their modern form.
