Finally, for some applications I have made an AJAX (javascript + PHP)

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?



Ah, now you're asking.
I'll have to try and extract the code into a sanitised form for public consumption: give me a little time... But yes, the string fed back to the user gives the month as a string, to avoid confusion with numeric months.
