We need to be careful about adding further JavaScript dependencies. JSCalendar 
was abandoned. The CalendarDateSelect project seems to have lost steam.

I guess that is the risk of relying on libraries that only have a single developer.

Looking further into Nicedit today, it seems to have the same problem in that 
there is only a single developer on the project. Furthermore I'm not even sure 
its a true open source project. At least I could not find the source repository 
on the site.

Come to think of it, perhaps Nicedit isn't a viable replacement for YUI at this 

An alternative might be Xinha[1] which is used by Apache Roller.
