Maybe...

MsgBox(0x0, "Date", _Date_Format("december 11, 2008"))


Func _Date_Format($info)
    $info = StringReplace($info, ",", "")
    $info = StringSplit($info, " ")
    $month = StringSplit("Jan,Feb,Mar,Apr,May,June,July,Aug,Sept,Oct,Nov,Dec", ",")
    For $x = 1 To 12
        If StringInStr($info[1], $month[$x]) Then
            $info[1] = $x
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Next
    $Result = $info[3] & "/" & $info[1] & "/" & $info[2]
    Return $Result
EndFunc   ;==>_Date_Format

A little shorter with error return

MsgBox(0x0, "Date", _Date_Format("december 11, 2008"))

Func _Date_Format($info)
    Local $inf0 = StringReplace($info, ",", ""), $inf = StringSplit($inf0, " ")
    Local $month = StringSplit("Jan,Feb,Mar,Apr,May,June,July,Aug,Sept,Oct,Nov,Dec", ",")
    For $x = 1 To 12
        If StringInStr($inf[1], $month[$x]) Then Return $inf[3] & "/" & $x & "/" & $inf[2]
    Next
    Return SetError(1, 0, -1)
EndFunc   ;==>_Date_Format

    Local $month = StringSplit("Jan,Feb,Mar,Apr,May,June,July,Aug,Sept,Oct,Nov,Dec", ",")
    Local $sSep = RegRead("HKCU\Control Panel\International", "sDate")
    For $x = 1 To 12
        If StringInStr($inf[1], $month[$x]) Then Return $inf[3] & $sSep & $x & $sSep & $inf[2]
