Thanks. I had started to deconstruct the template that returns the xs:duration string in order to use the guts for my purposes, but this saves a lot of trouble.

Use the "date-diff" template from the datetime_lib.xsl library that comes
with Marrowsoft XSelerator (you could just download the trial version of
XSelerator).

For more examples how to use this library see the Calendar application I
wrote two years ago at TopXML.com:

> I'm looking for a template that will return the number of days between two
dates (CCYY-MM-DD format). I've been through the EXSLT library but can only
find one that returns an xs:duration format. I'm sure that format is useful
to someone, somewhere, but since months may have 28, 29, 30, or 31 days, a
format telling me that there are 3 months and two days between two dates
doesn't tell me anything about the number of days.
