replacing text

I've a huge problem understanding XSLT.  I'm trying to replace the
contents of a element within a XML document, so that the time
information is removed.


<Document xmls:a="">

what I've tried is the following, but it seems to be hopelessly wrong;

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xml:space ="default"
	<xsl:template name="test">
		<xsl:for-each select="/a:Date">
			<xsl:call-template name="string-replace">
				<xsl:with-param name="text">
					<xsl:copy-of select="node()"/>

	<xsl:template name="string-replace">
		<xsl:param name ="text" />
		<xsl:value-of select="substring-before($text,'T')" />

Any help, pointers, tirade of my stupidity would be appreciated....
