This method is provided so that you can obtain a special date format called VT_DATE. This is used for communicating with ActiveX objects on the Windows platform.

This method is not standardized in ECMAScript and is not supported in Netscape, so you should use it with great caution. In any case, if you are likely to need it, then you'll likely be using an ActiveX object that is only available on the Windows platform.
