There's a function current-dateTime() in XPath 2.0, and a function format-dateTime() in XSLT 2.0 that will format it the way you want - except for the EST bit (which might not work reliably because the function doesn't necessarily know that you're in the United States in winter; all it knows is the timezone offset -05:00)
