Namespace 'urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt' does not contain function 'format-date'. -->msxsl:format-date(., 'MMM dd, yyyy'...

in IE6.

Can you help me?

XML:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<XMLSamples xml:space="preserve"
xmlns:dt="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:datatypes">
<FileDetails>
<Author>Robert Brown</Author>
<Date dt:dt="datetime">2000-02-16T15:56:00</Date>
</FileDetails>
</XMLSamples>


XSL:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
xmlns:ms="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt"
xmlns:dt="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:datatypes">
<xsl:template match="/">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<xsl:for-each select="XMLSamples/FileDetails/Date">
<DIV>
Date Unedited:
<xsl:value-of select="."/>
</DIV>
<DIV>
Date Edited:
<xsl:value-of select="ms:format-date(., 'MMM dd, yyyy')"/>
</DIV>
</xsl:for-each>
</BODY>
</HTML>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

Hi Girsh,
that help page specifies that the extension function only applies to .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5; IE6 uses MSXML as built-in processor, so that function is not available.

Can you suggest another way to format date via browser's XLST processor?

It depends on the level of functionality you need: but several examples exist on the web. For instance,

http://geekswithblogs.net/workdog/archive/2007/02/08/105858.aspx

http://www.exslt.org/date/functions/format-date/date.format-date.template.xsl.html

Or, if you can use XSLT 2.0, use the format-date already defined there: http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt20/#function-format-date
