Finally, for some applications I have made an AJAX (javascript + PHP) implementation which provides feedback to the user as they type in the date field: every time a character is typed in the box, the backend is asked to parse it and then format it in an unambiguous way and send it back to the client. That way the user can *see* if what they are typing is valid... Of course, you *still* have to validate it when it's posted (and the network overhead might be too much).

That would be interesting to see.

With a little work, I envision a way to alleviate the Europe/US date format difference. (i.e., day/month/year : Europe vs month/day/year : US).

As the user typed in the date, the day/month problem could be shown via string-month (i.e., Jan... ).

How does yours work?
