date footer? (1 post)

    ok, i'm making the move from movabletype 3 to wordpress. in movabletype, however, i had date header and date footer tags. i figured out that the_date(); will display only once per day -- that's great, i can use the 'before' and 'after' parameters to do the date header -- but is there any way to have a date footer?

    here's what my xhtml looks like:
    -------------------------
    <div class="day">
    <h4 class="date_header">2006.02.02</h4>
    <ul class="entry_ul">
    <li class="entry_li">
    <<entry-1-text>>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<<permalink-for-comments>>
    </li>
    <li class="entry_li">
    <<entry-2-text>>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<<permalink-for-comments>>
    </li>
    <li class="entry_li">
    <<entry-3-text>>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<<permalink-for-comments>>
    </li>
    </ul>
    </div>

    -------------------------

    i've discovered that i can do this for the date header:
    -------------------------
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <?php the_date('', '
    <div class="day">
    <h4 class="date_header">', '</h4>
    <ul class="entry_ul">'); ?>
    <li class="entry_li">
    <<entry-1-text>>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<<permalink-for-comments>>
    </li>
    <li class="entry_li">
    <<entry-2-text>>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<<permalink-for-comments>>
    </li>
    <li class="entry_li">
    <<entry-3-text>>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<<permalink-for-comments>>
    </li>

    <!-- however i have no idea what i can use to close these "date footer" tags with -->
    </ul>
    </div>

    -------------------------

    any ideas?
