Hi all,

Is there an elegant way to convert the output of the Date[] function
into other formats, like formatted strings?  Specifically, I have my
own routine to output the results of my calculations into a specific
file format.  I want to automatically include the date, but I want it
in the format: <Month> <day>, <Year>.  So today's date would output
"June 8, 2006".  I know this is easy enough to do using some brute
force (ie create a lookup table to convert numeric months to their
string equivalents).  However, I was hoping that a more elegant, or at
least more native solution might be possible.
