XSLT DateTime Formatting

Support for date and time formating in the XSLT 1.0 specification is non-existent. This did not mean that a person cannot format date and time strings using XSLT 1.0; it just makes it much harder to do so and adds many extra lines of code to stylesheets. 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.
