Very doable in XSLT 2.0.

Well, we're using and from what I can tell, at least out of the box, we're stuck with XSLT 1.0. Since this is really a minor aspect of the overall application, I think I'm going to just have to 'cheat' and store the date in two formats in the XML itself. Ugly, yes. But it'll work. ;o)


If you use ASP.NET, you are using a dot-net language, meaning that you can use Saxon, which has a .NET version and which supports XSLT 2.0.

Even though this is only a minor part of your app, if you use XSLT in more places I highly recommend moving to XSLT 2.0, it will make your life way easier (it is not just an update to the language, it is a, 99% compatible, huge extension and rewrite of the language) for all your current XSLT 1.0 stylesheets maintenance.
