Broadly, you're either going to have to limit their choices going in to
the form (limit the choices in the drop-down box), or validate it
afterwards and generate an error message if it's wrong.
except maybe for Ashley's (mentioned in another thread). And even at
that, a PHP one won't be selectable the way you want unless you put
radio buttons next to all the dates. And after all that, you'd still
have to do some pre-processing of it to limit selections to current date
