I have a date string (ie dd/mm/yy) which I'm drawing out of a database (ODBC connection to Access) with a Z SQL method and I need to use that data to set the initial condition of a set of 3 select items (ie day, month and year).  Is there a way to split this date (it'll come out looking like dd/mm/yy) to get the components of it so that I can do:
<select name="start_month">
<dtml-in "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12">
<dtml-if "some_split_of_date_string_to_get_month(start_date) == _['sequence-item']">
<option value="<dtml-var sequence-item>" selected><dtml-var sequence-item></option>
<option value="<dtml-var sequence-item>"><dtml-var sequence-item></option>
