Hi,

I'm using xslt to display date from xml
In xml the date is like "2009-02-11T15:55:20.283-08:00" , which i'm reading from xsl.
I want to change the format of date to "02-11-2009" in xsl.


How can i do that

Thanks and Regards
Puneet
XML:
 
<a>
<b id="1">
  <date>2009-02-11T15:55:20.283-08:00</date>
</b>
<b id="2">
  <date>2009-02-21T10:55:20.283-08:00</date>
</b>
 
 
and my xsl is 
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="html" encoding="UTF-8"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<html>
<head><title>Oa</title><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>
<body  bgcolor="#808080">
<TR>
<xsl:for-each select="a/b">
<TD width="10%" align="center"><xsl:value-of select="date"/></TD> 
</TR>
</body>
</html>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
