Actually, for getting the month name, you probably will have to write a
template.  I said exslt before verifying they supported that function.
However, it sounds like you have a lot of date/time needs, so you may
want to look at what they offer.  The documentation and categorization
is pretty decent.

I don't find the documentation at all decent for my needs.

If I go here for example:

...all I see is this:

Template Syntax
<xsl:call-template name="date:month-abbreviation">
   <xsl:with-param name="date-time" select="string" />?

The date:month-abbreviation function returns the abbreviation of the month of a date. If no argument is given, then the current local date/time, as returned by date:date-time is used the default argument.

I'm a beginner (and someone with otherwise no coding background), and the above makes no sense to me. What I need is an example that actually works.

As a general point, then, it would be really helpful if these exslt pages could just provide the most minimal of working examples in the documentation.
