I saved this answer, because I thought I might need it -- might be what you
need:

I think I've got the syntax, Jeff:

<dtml-var "_.DateTime(birthday)" fmt=aCommon>

- birthday is a field returned from my Z SQL Method
- The "_.DateTime(birthday)" part creates a DateTime object
- The '_' is a reference to the DTML namespace
- The DateTime() function creates the DateTime object
- The fmt=aCommon part formats it to look like: "May 7, 1966 12:00 am"

You can change the format by changing the fmt=XXXX so that XXXX is the
format you want from Appdx A of the Zope DTML reference.

If the you the current time, you might also try using  ZopeTime instead of
"_.DateTime(birthday)".  

have fun!
Luis.
