Add time variables to FAQ?

Someone on here already posted them, couldn't find 'em in the forums so I searched Google. I think it'd be great if you could add this to a faq of some sort.

The conversion specifications are copied to the buffer after expansion as
     follows:-

     %A    is replaced by national representation of the full weekday name.

     %a    is replaced by national representation of the abbreviated weekday
           name.

     %B    is replaced by national representation of the full month name.

     %b    is replaced by national representation of the abbreviated month
           name.

     %C    is replaced by (year / 100) as decimal number; single digits are
           preceded by a zero.

     %c    is replaced by national representation of time and date.

     %D    is equivalent to ``%m/%d/%y''.

     %d    is replaced by the day of the month as a decimal number (01-31).

     %E* %O*
           POSIX locale extensions.  The sequences %Ec %EC %Ex %EX %Ey %EY %Od
           %Oe %OH %OI %Om %OM %OS %Ou %OU %OV %Ow %OW %Oy are supposed to
           provide alternate representations.

           Additionly %OB implemented to represent alternative months names
           (used standalone, without day mentioned).

     %e    is replaced by the day of month as a decimal number (1-31); single
           digits are preceded by a blank.

     %F    is equivalent to ``%Y-%m-%d''.

     %G    is replaced by a year as a decimal number with century.  This year
           is the one that contains the greater part of the week (Monday as
           the first day of the week).

     %g    is replaced by the same year as in ``%G'', but as a decimal number
           without century (00-99).

     %H    is replaced by the hour (24-hour clock) as a decimal number
           (00-23).

     %h    the same as %b.

     %I    is replaced by the hour (12-hour clock) as a decimal number
           (01-12).

     %j    is replaced by the day of the year as a decimal number (001-366).

     %k    is replaced by the hour (24-hour clock) as a decimal number (0-23);
           single digits are preceded by a blank.

     %l    is replaced by the hour (12-hour clock) as a decimal number (1-12);
           single digits are preceded by a blank.

     %M    is replaced by the minute as a decimal number (00-59).

     %m    is replaced by the month as a decimal number (01-12).

     %n    is replaced by a newline.

     %O*   the same as %E*.

     %p    is replaced by national representation of either "ante meridiem" or
           "post meridiem" as appropriate.

     %R    is equivalent to ``%H:%M''.

     %r    is equivalent to ``%I:%M:%S %p''.

     %S    is replaced by the second as a decimal number (00-60).

     %s    is replaced by the number of seconds since the Epoch, UTC (see
           mktime(3)).

     %T    is equivalent to ``%H:%M:%S''.

     %t    is replaced by a tab.

     %U    is replaced by the week number of the year (Sunday as the first day
           of the week) as a decimal number (00-53).

     %u    is replaced by the weekday (Monday as the first day of the week) as
           a decimal number (1-7).

     %V    is replaced by the week number of the year (Monday as the first day
           of the week) as a decimal number (01-53).  If the week containing
           January 1 has four or more days in the new year, then it is week 1;
           otherwise it is the last week of the previous year, and the next
           week is week 1.

     %v    is equivalent to ``%e-%b-%Y''.

     %W    is replaced by the week number of the year (Monday as the first day
           of the week) as a decimal number (00-53).

     %w    is replaced by the weekday (Sunday as the first day of the week) as
           a decimal number (0-6).

     %X    is replaced by national representation of the time.

     %x    is replaced by national representation of the date.

     %Y    is replaced by the year with century as a decimal number.

     %y    is replaced by the year without century as a decimal number
           (00-99).

     %Z    is replaced by the time zone name.

     %z    is replaced by the time zone offset from UTC; a leading plus sign
           stands for east of UTC, a minus sign for west of UTC, hours and
           minutes follow with two digits each and no delimiter between them
           (common form for RFC 822 date headers).

     %+    is replaced by national representation of the date and time (the
           format is similar to that produced by date(1)).

     %%    is replaced by `%'.
