More or less, the two together would literally translate to "and to such point".
Therefore the statement "You have until March 1st to pay your rent of 0 to avoid eviction." would translate roughly to "At this present time have you a debt of 0.
My default reading of that would be that you can deliver the product at any time on the 18th of August, 2011 and still be considered to have met your deadline.
If the deadline were August 17, it would have been stated as "(before August 18, 2011)".
Using that definition, until Aug 18th would mean that your last possible moment to comply would be Aug 17th, .99.....
Coming from prehistoric German, "Till" passed into old English as meaning a goal or fixed point in either space or time.
As no time was supplied, it might be compromised to be high noon August 18, 2011. This was over an email message sent to me during my abscence at work.

It read as the following: Not sure yougot the text message. May want to check in with luc regarding his staffing needs.
The point is that I was trying to get further clarification as some of you have suggested. Regarding the second, to me, "within 2 days" means within 48 hours, so in this context, by on August 18, 2011.Bottom line: in the subject case, the Illinois court judge ruled that 'until' means up to and including.(He ruled this way despite a case that the losing side claimed had set precedent the other way.) This is the opposite of the conclusion I reached via pseudocode. Contract ambiguity is generally resolved by courts in favor of the party that did not write the contract. Because of this, I was drawn to people like my best friend, who was dynamic and bold.She was the one who things happened to, the starting point of every story. He, in turn, went to find my friend and her boyfriend, who were none too pleased at having to leave so soon after we got there. Hearing that he wanted more felt like wading into the deep end. had feelings for me, I felt strange every time I saw him.
