First of all let me say hi, i'm new to the boards so go easy on me.
I've searched through the forum looking for an answer to a niggling problem I have with an XSL stylesheet. I receive a <startDate> through my XML and I would like to display this date as a count down. For example 99days 8hours 9minutes - until next event.
I do not need my countdown to be a 'live' countdown (like you would see in DHTML or similar.) As the page loads I simply want to attach the current date and time to a variable so I can calculate accordingly.
Searching the internet has uncovered a few options (http://exslt.org/date/index.html
) but after experimenting with them I have been unable to fix this problem. Has anyone got a quick fix??
Thanks in advance
