Support for date and time formating in the XSLT 1.0 specification is non-existent.

However it is something that everybody who develops stylesheets ends up having to do. In this post I show you several ways to format dates in XSLT 1.0 and discuss some of the new dateTime formating and manipulation functions in XSLT 2.0 and XPath 2.0.
