[Tex/LaTex] Date format in LaTeX


I use UKenglish package. And the \date command produces the date like so: 10th October 2011. But I want just 10 October 2011; th should be omitted. How can this be done? I tried using datetime package. But couldn't eliminate th in the date.

The isodate package allows for various formatting of language-specific dates. The command \cleanlookdateon removes the ordinal numbering of the day and simply prints it as a numeric:

\usepackage[UKenglish]{babel}% http://ctan.org/pkg/babel
\usepackage[UKenglish]{isodate}% http://ctan.org/pkg/isodate
Original date format: \today \par
\cleanlookdateon% Remove ordinal day reference
Modified date format: \today

Modified UK date
