Pretty vague requirements, but this:

<%@language=VBScript%>
<%
Set xmlDoc = Server.CreateObject("Msxml2.DomDocument")
Set oNode = xmlDoc.createElement("myTime")
oNode.text = CStr(Now)
xmlDoc.appendChild oNode
xmlDoc.save Server.MapPath("currentTime.xml")

Set xmlSource = Server.CreateObject("Msxml2.DomDocument")
xmlSource.async = true
xmlSource.load Server.MapPath("currentTime.xml")

Set xslDoc = Server.CreateObject("Msxml2.DomDocument")
xslDoc.async = true
xslDoc.load Server.MapPath("TimeTest.xslt")
xmlDoc.transformNodeToObject xslDoc, Response
%>

along with this XSLT:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
      <xsl:output method="html" version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="yes"/>
      <xsl:template match="/">
            <h1><xsl:value-of select="myTime"/></h1>
      </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

does what you ask, producing this output:

<h1>4/26/2004 3:30:46 PM</h1>
