Bug 7145 - Valid date strings should accept ambiguous inputs, like "2009" or "2007-01"
Synopsis of the issue(s)
<time> element should accept date and/or time inputs of varying precision, such as YYYY or YYYY-MD. One example is the very common archive view found on most blogs, which contain distinct links or headers for each year, each month per year, and often each date within a chosen or highlighted month. Currently, the
<time> element only allows for
datetime values as imprecise as a specific day, e.g. YYYY-MM-DD.
