E.0 Java SimpleDateFormat Syntax

Date and time formats are specified by date and time pattern strings. Within date and time pattern strings, unquoted letters from A to Z (including a to z) are interpreted as pattern letters representing the components of a date or time string. Text can be quoted using single quotes (') to avoid interpretation. "''" represents a single quote. All other characters are not interpreted; they’re simply copied into the output string during formatting or matched against the input string during parsing.
