I'm very new to screenlets, so I don't know if I can provide much insight into your situation. I've run TextDateTime successfully within Compiz and Metacity, with and without compositing.

Are you using Screenlets 0.1.2? Does TextDateTime print any errors to ~/.xsession-errors or ~/.config/Screenlets/TextDateTimeScreenlet.log ?

The calligraphic fonts in that screenshot are Zapfino Linotype Three and Zapfino Linotype Four, both available at http://fonts.ro/ . The weekday (%A) and date (%e %B %Y) are just positioned very close to each other, and right-aligned to keep them looking consistent as the text changes from day to day.

I'm glad you like the screenlet, I'm happy to finally share it with other people. :)
