You don't need to change you UI, just piece it together like so


<dtml-call "propertysheets.MyProperties.manage_changeProperties(
            start_date=REQUEST['passed_in_day']+' '+ REQUEST['begin_hour']
+ ':' + REQUEST['begin_minute'],
            end_date=...same stuff...

Zope will try to convert it to a date type for you.
