For those who are developing interfaces for entering dates, I recommend
checking out a new package I just stuffed for Date inputs.

You can check out http://datebox.inimit.com/ for a full demo.

Very cool, Nathaniel!  Thank-you.  I'll see if I can include this in
BundledResource.

Really good, but not all people have the correct date set on their
computer!

Very good point.

A future enhancement may be then for AJAX validation, if the date is not
within any of the timezones (or possibly check the timezone on their
computer), then use that as the date instead.

This could be a nice enhancement to ensure validity of the date.

Although, the date calendar would still work well in this case :)
