You can format data so that it matches any pattern of text and numbers when default formats are not appropriate. For example, you can format dates to use full text, including the era, or you can format them to only use numbers and show the last two digits of years to save space.
Using symbols and patterns can provide similar results as basic data formatting tasks. Patterns allow flexibility for more complex requirements.
Each supported content language code requires a specific set of symbols to be used in patterns. For each language code, there are two tables you will need; one for date and time symbols, and one for decimal symbols.
