XFCE: Panel clock settings

Setting the panel to display custom information is done by using these:

 %B  locale's full month name (e.g., January)  
 %c  locale's date and time (e.g., Thu Mar 3 23:05:25 2005)  
 %C  century; like %Y, except omit last two digits (e.g., 21)  
 %d  day of month (e.g, 01)  
 %D  date; same as %m/%d/%y
