Assuming you're using MSXML, the resource that you're after is the
MSXML SDK, which contains documentation of the Microsoft extension
element msxsl:script.  (There is no xsl:eval or xsl:script in
XSLT 1.0.)

Roughly, what you want is:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="";

  <msxsl:script language="VBScript" implements-prefix="user">
     function formatDate1(idate)
       formatDate1 = formatDateTime(idate, vbshortdate)
     end function
  <xsl:template match="invoice">
    <xsl:value-of select="user:formatDate1(invoicedate)"/>


I hope that helps,
