  Is there another way to get from weird date formates like this example:
  <pubDate>Wed, 23 Feb 2005 16:12:56 GMT</pubDate> a format that is recognizable by the parsers?

string handling's a bit easier in xslt2 as you have regular expressions
but if you _know_ the date is in that format then it's fairly easy even
in xslt1 to pull it apart with substring() as all the fields are fixed
width, then it's just a matter of a lookup table for the month names to
month numbers and then re-assembling the bits in the right format.
