    $UnixTimeStamp = time();
    $Title      = strftime('%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ', $UnixTimeStamp);
    $Caption    = strftime('%B %d, %Y at %H:%M', $UnixTimeStamp);
    print '<abbr class="date" title="'. $Title .'">'. $Caption .'</abbr>';
<!-- example result -->
<abbr class="date" title="2007-07-25T20:15:21Z">July 25, 2007 at 20:15</abbr>
