How Can I Customise Date Format In Search And Forms

This is really 2 questions, relating to date format.

1. I want to change the format of how the date appears in search results, eg from %SEARCH{ ....... format="$date ........."}%

This currently uses the format 25 Jan 2012 - 10:33 . I would like to remove the time element from the date to make it shorter, or possibly define a new format token for date without time. Where is this format defined and can I change it?

2. I want to change the format of the date as used in forms. If the formfield type is set as date you get a calendar to pick a date from , then it appears in the format 25 Jan 2012 However, this does not allow you to sort a column of date in a sensible way. If the date could appear as YYYY-MM-DD eg. 2012-01-25 then they can be easily sorted into chronological order. WHere is this date format defined and can I change it?

The date display format is system wide - defined in bin/configure Internationalization / Locale tab. And the date format saved into forms by JSCalendarContrib is set under the Extensions / JSCalendarContrib tab. {JSCalendarContrib}{format}

I have been revisiting this issue and the first point is not quite resolved. Looking at bin/configure Internationalization / Locale tab, the DefaultDateFormat is set to $day $month $year which is what I want. But I'm trying to get rid of the time element which appears from the $date element in %SEARCH{ ....... format="$date ........."}%. It doesn't seem possible to do this on that configure tab.

Do you have any further recommendation?
