I don't know any Dutch.

However, here's an external method that will convert the months and days
of the week in a string from English to German.

There are probably better names for the variables and such, so don't
take this as as example of clear maintainable programming :)

It ought be be pretty efficient.

Assuming you call the external method D_date, use something like this:

  <dtml-var "D_date('October February July, Tuesday, 23 March 2000')">
