Returns Date as a String, formatted as per the quoted date format string formatString.

This supplements the existing format() function.

For example:

$MyString = $MyDate.format("L") 

gets the note's creation date and formats it as a "long local date" such as "Sunday, 23 March, 2007" and sets that as the value of $MyString.

If data is a date, the format string is the same as the format used by Tinderbox's date format codes.
