I have a xml file that specifies date in terms of year, month, monthday, 


and I want to write out HTML but convert the <month> text node to be a 
string, i.e.,

1 = Jan
2 = Feb
12 = Dec

I was looking over the XSL spec and really don't see a way of doing this!  
<xsl:choose> appears close, but doesn't allow for string comparison.  Am I 
missing something or is this outside the scope of XSL?
