You have to specify a date format to your users, or at least assume a
certain amount of formats. If you don't do this, then there's no way to
validate it, because any amount of variations exist of date formats. 

If you require a mm/dd/yy format, then just break it apart and validate
each element. You'll basically have to write your own function, or
possibly use strtotime() to see if it returns a result.
