Hi ceg,

thanks for your question.

If you set the timezone to gmt+-0 in the preferences dialog (which
should be the default setting), the data/time format should change to
<time>2009-12-25T12:29:26.000Z</time> which should be readable by most

Does this solve your problem?

Thank you for providing an answer.
I could try it now, and it seems to work with "GMT+-0" including the .000 miliseconds just fine.
