Re:  how to compare dates
XSLT 2.0 supports a wide range of functions and operators on dates, but it expects them to be in ISO format (YYYY-MM-DD). You can easily convert your dates to this format using combinations of the substring() and concat() functions. So something like

test="xs:date(my:format-as-ISO(ItemDueDaye) > xs:date('2000-01-01')"

On the other hand if you're using XSLT 1.0 then it's often simplest to convert the date 20110101 to the number 20110101 and do a numeric comparison.

I want to compare  to dates with each other:
ItemDueDate which has YYYY-MM-DD format  and the 20110101.
When the ItemDueDate is bigger than 20000101,I fill two leading zero in the result and display the result in 00YYYYMMDD format.
Thanks for any help
