Not knowing how to do it in htdig, I can recommend some hackish ways to
1) if you're so inclined, use the PHP wrapper for HTDig. After a little
tweaking, I'm quite happy with it. With this you regex your way to
correctly format specific date strings
2) I know you wanted to make it easy for them, you could have a special
form for searching dates that has three fields (day month year) and then
concatenates the date strings together in the proper format server side,
