Converts the date to a string using the current locale.

dateObj.toLocaleString( )

The toLocaleString method returns a String object that contains the date written in the current locale's default format. The format of the return value depends on the current locale. For example, in the United States, toLocaleString may return "01/05/96 00:00:00" for January 5, but in Europe, it may return "05/01/96 00:00:00" for the same date, as European convention puts the day before the month.
