RE: format-dateTime localised picture parameters long
I think it would be quite easy to define a library of functions that package the date formatting facilities in this way, but I don't think there's any need to put this in the core language. If you think there are inadequacies in the format-date() facilities provided in the latest (12 Nov) XSLT 2.0 working draft, or if you can suggest specific improvements, then the place to send them is public-qt-comments@xxxxxxx Michael Kay > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > [mailto:owner-xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of > Richard Zschech > Sent: 13 November 2003 10:35 > To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > Subject: format-dateTime localised picture parameters > long medium short > > > |Would it be posible to define special picture parameters for the date > and time formatting methods such as "long" "medium" "short".
