    Very nice, Catrina, except that in Spanish, the days of the week and the months of the year are not capitalized when spelled out or abbreviated.

    Also, technically, "mié" for miércoles, has an accent (tilde).

    Saludos.

    Gracias Zumac,

    Me faltó ponerles puntos ¿verdad? Están en mayúscula porque están abreviados...

    ... lo del acento en mie ... mejor no :) porque se confunde con la conjugación (jajaja)

    saludos :)

    No, no te faltó ponerles puntos. No lo llevan.

    Y aunque esten abreviados, no llevan mayúscula.

    Saludos.
