I think. Derek, that what he is saying is that the Canadians 
now require the character string "yyyymmdd" to be printed on 
the check immediately under the numerical date.

Exactly what this is supposed to accomplish is beyond me, 
and I really believe it is an issue for the printers of 
blank check stationery, but if I read the post correctly 
it's not an issue that can be addresses by the current Gnucash.
