xsl date processing

For a (docbook) project of mine, it would be practical to fill the content of
an element with the date of when the actual processing took place. I have a
vague memory of an old (probably outdated) book which mentioned an XSL
function which returned just that. Judging from google's empty answers, I'm
rambling. Is there such a function, or can my problem be solved in some other
elegant way?

Here's the relevant parts from my XSL stylesheet.

<xsl:stylesheet version='1.0'
xmlns:format='java.text.SimpleDateFormat' exclude-result-prefixes='date'>


<fo:static-content flow-name="xsl-region-after">
<fo:block text-align="right" space-after="0.75in" end-indent="1.0in" font-size="8pt">
<xsl:variable name="pattern">yyyy-MM-dd</xsl:variable>
<xsl:variable name="SimpleDateFormat"
<xsl:variable name="Date" select="date:new()"/>
Draft date: <xsl:value-of select="format:format($SimpleDateFormat, $Date)"/>
