I add the date to the source XML, from where I can select it in XSL.

This has the advantage that a/ The date will be the last edit date of the
XML, which suits me fine, and b/ I can format the date nicely: I have a node
like <date day="Monday" date="12" month="3" year="2001"/> so I can have
templates in XSL to return Monday 3rd or 3/12/2001 or 12-March-01 as
required

You should do this using XSLT/XPath, not using XSL:FO. But the
subsequent problem is that XSLT/XPath does not directly support dates.
So I suggest you look at EXSLT, for example. They have some date and
time functions that you can use.
