Lock date formatting, culture settings, of an analysis. Merged

I would like to lock (set explicitly) the date formatting, or value formatting at all, within an analysis opened in the Web Player. Currently the different language/culture settings in the web browsers will make it impossible for them to work with dates in a correct manner as they have their analyses available globally.

Our report user is present across the geography. And if the code is dependent of browser setting then it may work for some user and fail for other user. We need to have ability to specify date format when we are converting a String to date.
