# Template:DOW

This template computes the ISO weekday number (1=Monday, 7=Sunday) for a given Gregorian date.

It has been especially useful for dates before 1 January 1970, because they were outside the range of #time.

{{DOW|2006|1|3}} gives 2.

Compare {{#time:w|20060103}} giving 2.

{{subst:DOW|2006|1|3|subst=subst:}} gives the wikitext 2.

Alternative weekday number systems are:

- 1=Monday, .. , 6=Saturday, 0=Sunday, used by variable {{CURRENTDOW}}
- 0=Monday, .. , 5=Saturday, 6=Sunday, used by en:Template:WEEKDAY and fr:Modèle:WEEKDAY

Syntax:

`{{DOW|`*year*`|`*month*`|`*day*`}}`

- The
*year*must be astronomical (*year*=1 in 1 AD (*Anno Domini*),*year*=0 in 1 BC,*year*=-1 in 2 BC). - The
*month*is between 1 and 12 from january to december. - The
*day*is normally between 1 and 31.
