Here's something I use:

   put the seconds into tTime
   convert tTime to dateitems
   subtract (char 1 to -3 of last word of the internet date) from item 4 of tTime
   convert tTime to dateitems
   set the numberformat to "00"
   put item 1 of tTime &"-"& (item 2 of tTime)+0 &"-"& (item 3 of tTime)+0 & "T" & (item 4 of 
tTime)+0 &":"& \
         (item 5 of tTime)+0 &":"& (item 6 of tTime)+0 & "Z" into tTimestamp
