First, there's no such thing as a Saxon2 parser. There's the SAXON XSLT
processor, currently in version 6.1, and there's SAX2 parser, which are
completely different products that do different things.

Second, it's not clear whether you are tryng to use javascript to generate
your result fo, or you want javascript to be inserted in your output. To
answer the question you asked, no, to my knowledge SAXON doesn't support
Javascript binding; it does have Java binding, though, so you could use the
java.util.Date object to accomplish the same thing.

But from your code it seems that you actually want to generate Javascript as
the result of your transformation (because your tag is <script>, not
<xsl:script>, and xsl is not defined to be the default namespace). If that's
what you want to do, than you don't need to worry about the processor's
Javascript binding: as far as it is concerned, SAXON will be just generating
some text that your client application (browser?) can interpret as
javascript, just as if you were generating HTML.

: Hey all,
: 	Does Saxon2 parser have javascript extensions? 
: 	And if so I could get the date from a javascript Date 
: object, right?
: 	Could this possibly work?
: <?xml version="1.0"?> 
: <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
:  xmlns:xsl=""; 
: xmlns:fo="";>
: ...	
: 	<script>
: 		function getTodaysDate() {
: 			date = Date.getDate() + "/" + 
: Date.getMonth() + "/" + Date.getYear();
: 			return date;
: 		}
: 	</script>  
: ...
: 	<fo:block space-before.optimum="30pt" font-size="8pt" 
: text-align="center">
: 	Generated: <script> getTodaysDate(); </script>
: 	</fo:block>
: ...
: 	Could this possibly work?
: 	thanks,
