The standard xsl for webtest displays the total time for the  
execution of a <webtest>.

The standard xsl does it by summing up the step/result/xxx/@duration  
of every
contained steps, which is a counted in seconds. xxx is either  
completed or failed.

This expression compute the duration of all the webtest from the report

     <xsl:variable name="duration.total"
result/node()[name()='completed' or name()='failed']/@duration)"/>

But it is easy to restrict to a single <webtest> by selecting its name:

     <xsl:variable name="duration.testA"
results/step/result/node()[name()='completed' or name()='failed']/ 

There is also an xsl template to format the result in h:m:s
                 <xsl:call-template name="time">
                     <xsl:with-param name="msecs"  

Have fun!
