XMLUnit ignore Timestamps?

I have a simple question:
Is it possible to ignore timestamps within the XML-Files using XMLUnit?

I use something like this:
Diff diff = new Diff(validString, toTestString);

The valid-String contains other timestamps as the totest-String which comes from a running database.

A very simple solution would be to erase all "timestamplike" strings in the toTestString and the validString but I think that there is an other way ... something linke an own DifferenceListener?
I think that this task is a very common one but google did not help me

The only thing I found was: It is possible with an own implementation of the DifferenceListener interface but not how.

Thanks for help

<file key="onekey" timestamp="2009.12.01"

should be resolved as equal with

<file key="onekey" timestamp="2007.10.02"

The timestampvalue should be ignored.
