[xsl] Embedded Javascript (xsl:script issue)

A few days ago I had posted a question about not being able to use
xsl:script, and since this e-mail group discuss quite sophisticated issues
my problem can easily be overlooked. However, I really don't know who to ask
for help!

I need to process a file containing a number of XML messages, translate them
to another HTML-like format and while doing that, generate a unique id for
each of them. One way is using the current date and time, which is what I
intended to do, with an embedded java script. It sounds simple, but I could
not get it to work. "org.xml.sax.SAXException: Instance method call to
method GetDateTime requires an Object instance as first argument" is the
error message I am getting back.

I am copying below the relevant bits of my XSL. I am using Xalan's Xerces
parser and XSLT Processor.

Would anyone have any idea about what I am doing wrong? I would appreciate
any help, even in the form of referral to a help desk, if there is any...
