php get microtime from date string

I am trying to get the time passed between two datetime strings (including milliseconds)


$pageTime = strtotime("2012-04-23T16:08:14.9-05:00");
$rowTime = strtotime("2012-04-23T16:08:16.1-05:00");
$timePassed = $rowTime - $pageTime;
echo $timePassed . "


What I want to see echoed is "1.2" but strtotime() ignores the millisecond part of the string. Also, apparently microtime() doesn't let you give it a datestring... Is there an alternative function for calculating this, or am I going to have to do some string parsing to extract the seconds and milliseconds and subtract?
