PHP to Coldfusion

Can anyone show me how to write this PHP snippet in Coldfusion?

<?php
header('Content-Type: text/xml');
echo "<?xml version=\"1.0\" ?><clock1><timenow>".date('H:i:s')."</timenow></clock1>";
?>

This is what I have but it doesn't quite work:
<cfprocessingdirective suppresswhitespace="Yes">
<cfcontent type="text/xml; charset=utf-16">
<cfxml variable="xmlobject">
<clock1>
      <timenow>
            <cfoutput>#timeFormat(Now(), "hh:mm:ss tt")#</cfoutput>
      </timenow>
</clock1>
</cfxml>

<cfset myvar=toString(xmlobject)>
<cfset mynewvar=replace(myvar, "UTF-8", "utf-16")>

<cfoutput>#mynewvar#</cfoutput>
</cfprocessingdirective>


Thanks

This works fine for me, whats the problem or error you are encountering?

<cfsetting enablecfoutputonly="true">
<cfxml variable="xmlobject">
<cfoutput><clock1>
     <timenow>
          #timeFormat(Now(), "hh:mm:ss tt")#
     </timenow>
</clock1></cfoutput>
</cfxml>

<cfcontent type="text/xml; charset=utf-8">
<cfoutput>#xmlobject#</cfoutput>

beware if you have debugging on the XML will never format correctly.

<cfsetting showdebugoutput="false">

lostboyinsofla,

Use <cfheader instead of the php version.

This is my calling template:

<html>
<head>
<title>Ajax Demonstration</title>
<style>
.displaybox {
width:150px;
background-color:#ffffff;
border:2px solid #000000;
padding:10px;
font:24px normal verdana, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;
}
</style>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function getXMLHTTPRequest() {
try {
req = new XMLHttpRequest();
} catch(err1) {
  try {
  req = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
  } catch (err2) {
    try {
    req = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
    } catch (err3) {
      req = false;
    }
  }
}
return req;
}

var http = getXMLHTTPRequest();
 
function getServerTime() {
  var myurl = 'test.cfm';
  myRand = parseInt(Math.random()*999999999999999);
  var modurl = myurl+"?rand="+myRand;  
  http.open("GET", modurl, true);
  http.onreadystatechange = useHttpResponse;
  http.send(null);
}

function useHttpResponse() {
   if (http.readyState == 4) {
    if(http.status == 200) {
       var timeValue = http.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("timenow")[0];
       document.getElementById('showtime').innerHTML = timeValue.childNodes[0].nodeValue;
    }
  } else {
  document.getElementById('showtime').innerHTML = '<img src="../loading.gif">';
  }
}
</script>
</head>
<body style="background-color:#cccccc" onLoad="getServerTime()">
<center>
<h1>Ajax Demonstration</h1>
<h2>Getting the server time without page refresh</h2>
<form>
<input type="button" value="Get Server Time" onClick="getServerTime()">
</form>
<div id="showtime" class="displaybox"></div>
</center>
</body>
</html>



This is the code to test.cfm:
<cfprocessingdirective suppresswhitespace="Yes">
<cfcontent type="text/xml; charset=utf-16">
<cfxml variable="xmlobject">
<clock1>
      <timenow>
            <cfoutput>#timeFormat(Now(), "hh:mm:ss tt")#</cfoutput>
      </timenow>
</clock1>
</cfxml>

<cfset myvar=toString(xmlobject)>
<cfset mynewvar=replace(myvar, "UTF-8", "utf-16")>

<cfoutput>#mynewvar#</cfoutput>
</cfprocessingdirective>


The call to test.cfm doesnt' return the time however it just spins.

When I replace test.cfm with test.php:
<?php
header('Content-Type: text/xml');
sleep(10);
echo "<?xml version=\"1.0\" ?><clock1><timenow>".date('H:i:s')."</timenow></clock1>";
?>

 It works fine and returns the time to the calling template.

Right I understand, so back to my original question, how do I make the coldfusion template be the same as the php template?  I guess I'm assuming that you mean the php is returning an xml doc because it works correctly so how should my cf template be formatted to function the same?

did you try my code from my first post?

<cfsetting enablecfoutputonly="true">
<cfxml variable="xmlobject">
<cfoutput><clock1>
     <timenow>
          #timeFormat(Now(), "hh:mm:ss tt")#
     </timenow>
</clock1></cfoutput>
</cfxml>

<cfcontent type="text/xml; charset=utf-8">
<cfoutput>#xmlobject#</cfoutput>
