Details
i wrote this class pretty quickly. so i apologize if its buggy.
with this class you can format the date and have it display anyway you want. 
calling the class returns the default date: "2004-04-13"

myDate(); constructor takes no arguments
returns the default date 2004-04-13

format_date(); takes 3 arguments. the function uses func_get_args();
you can pass the format_date function any date code in any order
format_date("Y","l","F"); returns 2004  Tuesday  April
format_date("l","Y","F"); returns Tuesday 2004 April
format_date("F","Y","l"); returns April 2004 Tuesday
and so on...

format_date( $seperator, [$seperator])
the set_seperator function can take 2 arguments. you must pass the first the second is optional;
if the second argument is not passed it takes the value of the first argument
set_seperator(" @ "," , "); returns 2004@Tuesday,April
set_seperator(" # "," ");  returns Tuesday#2004 April
set_seperator(" | "); returns April|2004|Tuesday
and so on...

get_date(); takes no arguments
simply returns the date;
