This is probably quite a simple question, but I have a number (17042000)
which I want to convert into a date. I've tried format-number(17042000,
'##/##/####'), but that doesn't work, and returns 17042000//, so, how would
I go about converting the above number into something that resembled a date?

And also, I'd like to perform a test on a number to determine if it's
positive or negative. Sgn usually does the trick, but can't see any
reference to it in xsl. What I'd like is to use:

	<xsl:when test="sgn($balanace)">
		make it green if positive
		make it red if negative

Any ideas?
