Ummm ... well I think it is obvious that I am not in Europe and that I am
not asking why I am getting a NaN ...
If you REALLY need me to make this clear.   I am trying to get the
differences between two dates.    If you dont know the American style of
dates 10/25/04 = 25/10/04
I can get from one to the other ... that is not an issue.   I want to find
out if there is a difference between the two.

Currently I am looking at:

                  <xsl:variable name="date-diff2"
,xs:dateTime(xs:date(sgfr:StringToDateFormat($todays-date)   ) ) )"/>

but this doesn't seem to work.

                      <d09@xxxxxxx>            To:       xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In Europe, the number of days between the two is NaN, because
10/25/2005 is not a valid date.
