Using the exslt functions in xslt 1.0 is not very hard. Here's what to do:

1) download the date and numerical format material from exslt.org
2) Put the following attribute in your xsl:stylesheet root element:


3) put the following include at the top level of your document (right after the root element).
<xsl:include href="path-to-installed-the-exslt-elements/date.xsl" />

4) Add the function to your sheet where you want it to appear:

	  <xsl:when test="function-available('date:date-time')">
	    (<xsl:value-of select="date:date-time()"/>)

The only problem I had when I did this, was there was a bad include in one of the exslt stylesheets (it was looking in the wrong directory for a padding stylesheet). It wasn't hard to fix, though.
