You can do this using a stylesheet customization file.
See this DocBook FAQ to learn how to customize DocBook XSL:

For the specifics on customizing the footer, see:

If you follow that FAQ, you'll create a 
template named 'user.footer.content', which would
look something like this:

<xsl:template name="user.footer.content">
  <div class="footer.date">
    <xsl:value-of select="//bookinfo/date" />
You can add other HTML tags if you like.
