Logically, inserting the date at compile time doesn't really make sense. You don't want the date of compiling there, you want the date the letter was written and originally sent. So there is really value in having the author enter the date manually.

The 'mm' macros produce the new-date macro, ND

        .ND "9th July 2019"

while redefines the DT (date) string from its compile time value while


interpolates it, e.g.

        .ti +4i
