Hi Harri,

Hmm.. I could add also a partitive form to locale data and use that in
the number formatter. Is the rule simply always that if the day precedes
the month the genitive is used, and if the day follows the month the
partitive is used?

Well the genitive and partitive need to be swapped here

Of course, my bad.

but othewise, yes. So 
the complete rule looks like this:

- If there is no day of month in the format, use nominative form for the 
- If the day is before month, use partitive form for the month.
- Otherwise (that is, if the day is after month) use genitive form.

Thanks, I'll add partitive case month names as well.

anyone checked how this affects interoperability with Excel?

I think they use a similar approach for genitive case names (use them if
a day of month is present), but I haven't heard of partitive case.
