what format does the formatedatetime return?

anyhow, check out the php date/time functions page:
http://www.php.net/datetime
you will find this one:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

that should answer your question(s) about date formatting.

What you are trying to do is an asp (VBScript) date stamp which will not work with php.
This is what you want to get the format you are looking for (1st example)

$date_sent = date("n/j/Y"); //will give mdy like this 1/2/2005
also
$date_sent = date("d/m/y"); //will give mdy like this 01/02/05

here is a good url to php.net
http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php
