Whoever created this XML needs to be told that dates that will be read by
computer programs should be formatted as Y-M-D, whereas dates that will be
read by people should be formatted in the way those people prefer it.  XML
files are meant for computer input, not human input.

Take the current date with this format: 05/04/2001

i have this xml with some news-blocks

<block startdate="03/04/2001" endddate="06/04/2001" id="1">news 1</block>
<block startdate="05/04/2001" endddate="10/04/2001" id="2">news 2</block>

I have an extern xml-file (current_date.xml, in same root of other *.xml)
that contains always current date like this

now, in xsl i want only view the newsblocks where currentdate is between the
start- and enddate.

<xsl:for-each select="news/block[@startdate =>
document(current_date.xml)/current_date and @enddate =<

of course, this isn't working, because:

How have i to handle the date ? to compare correctly the day, month and year
