LC has me covered for text string dates and dates stored in seconds but SQLIte can also store dates in Julian format, defined as the number of days since 11/24, 4714 BC.  I guess it's a matter of conjecture as what's significant about that date but aside form that, I can't find anything in he LC dictionary that leads me to believe it can deal with dates in that format.  Anyone come up with a way to deal with Julian dates/
