Cheers, -- Abel Braaksma
I am a newbie to XSL . I have 2 XML feeds which have a pubdate
tag having different date formats . One uses the standard RFC 822 format and
the other non RFC 822 format.
1 st feed -----------------
<pubDate>Mon, 07 Jan 2008 15:24:04 -0600</pubDate> (RFC 822)
2 nd feed --------------------
<pubDate>March 7, 2007</pubDate>
I want to convert both these date formats to ISO 8601 format.The point is i want to do this in a single XSL file . I know there are substring() and concat() functions which can help me achieve this. Now my question is, how can I identify which format the date is ( 1st format or 2 nd ) in the first place ? If i can identify which format the date is in, I can covert them to ISO 8601 format.
Thanks in advance, Jayashree Venkatesh
