When you set your variable:

> <xsl:variable name="currentLanguage" select="/page/language" />

You are actually setting it to a node: the language element that's a
child of the page document element.  So the value that you pass into
the VBScript function is a node, whereas it's expecting a string,
which is why you get the problem.

Instead, either change the select expression of the variable to give
it a string value:

<xsl:variable name="currentLanguage"
              select="string(/page/language)" />

or make sure you pass a string when you call the function:

    select="ms:GetLanguageFormattedDate(string($currentLanguage))" />

I hope that helps,
