Thanks for the help. Do you have an example? I am very new to XML (just
starting to learn even what a DTD is for) and am unable to get the previous
suggestions to work. When I entered the "xsl:variable" solution, I got a
"can not use xsl:variable there" type message.

Others gave the direct way to translate dates. You can also use the XSLT 
Standard Library

I use it to print events for a calendar. The input is iCalendar 
converted to XML.

   <param kind="TZID">CT(America/Chicago)</param>

The stylesheet parts are
<xsl:call-template name="DATE">
   <xsl:with-param name="this-date" select="DTSTART/value"/>
<xsl:template name="DATE">
   <xsl:param name="this-date"/>

   <xsl:call-template name="dt:format-date-time">
     <xsl:with-param name="year" select='substring($this-date, 1, 4)' />
     <xsl:with-param name="month" select='substring($this-date, 5, 2)'/>
     <xsl:with-param name="day" select='substring($this-date, 7, 2)'/>
     <xsl:with-param name="hour" select='substring($this-date, 10, 2)'/>
     <xsl:with-param name="minute" select='substring($this-date, 12, 2)'/>
     <xsl:with-param name="second" select='substring($this-date, 14, 2)'/>
     <xsl:with-param name="time-zone"></xsl:with-param>
     <xsl:with-param name="format" select="'%Y-%m-%dT %H:%M:%S'" />

It's overkill if you just want to convert the date. Perhaps you want to 
format dates in several ways...
