In 2.0, 

<xsl:variable name="DATE_ORIGIN" select="xs:date('1970-01-01')"
   (or whatever your baseline is)
<xsl:variable name="MILLISECOND" select="xdt:dayTimeDuration('PT0.001S')"

then (say):

<xsl:value-of select="format-date($DATE_ORIGIN + ($date * $MILLISECOND),
'[Do] [MNn] [Y]')"/>

In 1.0 there's no standard way of doing it. You need extensions, for example
the EXSLT extensions. If these didn't work for you, you need to explain what
you did and in what way it failed.
