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>
