Formatting Options?

I was wondering about the possibility of adding in some formatting options to the SQL Doc tool. Speaking as a yank, it would be nice to be able to choose the date string format used in the document, to select something other than the standard European format, to eliminate the time and just show the date, etc.

Also, it would be very useful to have some options to customize the cover page of the documentation, e.g., when generating a Word document. The ability to include an image for a company logo would be nice. Even just something as simple as being able to exclude the server name and file path (which are only specific to a particular installation of the database) would be helpful when generating the documentation against a database on development server.

The cover page can be manually updated in one place after generating the document, and the date format could be changed with a "find-and-replace" on the document. It would be much easier to be able to specify those options before generating the document than to have to edit the document every time it's generated.

Thanks for your consideration.
