I'm trying to use the method formatDate but I can't make it work.
I made this simple XML document:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml:stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="testformatDate.xsl"?>

and this stylesheet:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="";>
  <xsl:template match="/">
          formatDate(new Date(Date.parse(this.text)).getVarDate(),
"yyyyddm", "ddmmmyy")
          formatDate(this.nodeTypedValue, "yyyyddm", "ddmmmyy")

I'm using IE5 and neither of the two methods seems to work. I would like to
change the date from 1999095 to 5sep99.
Can someone help me?
