I'd use 5. -- 7. 9. 2008 or 5. 9. -- 7. 9. 2008 (but I am not 100% sure about that either). IIRC there should be non-breakable spaces after the dots, not sure around the n-dash. We usually don't add starting zeros to the "dot notation" (if used with spaces). If you want to go with the other sorting I'd probably not use dots (slashes would be probably best) and I am not sure how to correctly express ranges in that notation. If you'd like to go without spaces, use slashes, i.e. 5/9/2008 -- 7/9/2008 (I'm not sure if you can omit month/year). But generally, in Czech Republic we are used to the little endian format with slight preference for points over slashes. Martin PS: don't take my word for granted, even though I am Czech I don't remember the exact typographic rules for writing dates and date ranges.
