Ahoy matie,

  I use this javascript bit as below.. much more painless


  <script language="JavaScript">
    //-- returns the current date in mm.dd.yyyy format as a string :
      function todayStr()
      { var today=new Date()
today.getMonth()+1+"."+today.getDate()+"."+(today.getYear()) }

  <td align="center">
    <span style="font-size:10pt; font-weight:bold;">
	a/o <script>document.write(todayStr())</script>

- Flashlight

XSLT 1.0 has no built-in date/time functionality, but if portability is not
an issue you may be able to use extension libraries like EXSLT:  There's no guarantee a given
processor supports all EXSLT functionality, of course.

XSLT 2.0 (in working draft) also provides date/time functionality:
