Pattern Matching and Date Formating Can't Post

I need to :

Create a HTML form with a large TEXTAREA element. When the form is submitted the text in the text area will be displayed as a
web page, but with all dates changed from numeric to word format. Dates in numeric form have three numeric parts (day, month and
year) separated by a separator, either "/" or "-". Examples of acceptable numeric dates are 8/11/99, 01/01/00, 1-5-2001. These should
be converted to 8th November 1999, 1st January 2000 and 1st April 2001. A suitable rule for determining the centuary for two digit years is needed. It is assumed that a date does not split across two lines but note that one line may contain several dates.

can anyone help ? thanks
