Language formatting of dates

Hi there,

my system locale is English, but I have set the language of a date merge field in Word to be French unfortunately after merging the date is in English

With a MS <> field {DATE \@ "dddd, d. MMMM yyyy" \* MERGEFORMAT}giving DateTime.Today I get mardi, 3. juin 2008

With an Aspose MergeField though {MERGEFIELD QuoteDate \@ "dddd, d.. MMMM yyyy " \* MERGEFORMAT} I get Tuesday 3 June 2008

IE it seems to be ignoring the language of the field (even setting the language of the whole document it still converts to my system locale)

Cheers james
