Subject RE: Struts Taglibs

You could use one of these slick javascript calendars to allow users to
enter dates easier.

http://www.mattkruse.com/javascript/calendarpopup/

In my experience, this is something that seems to get a lot of attention
when developing, but if you simply put a note next to the field (i.e.
dd/mm/yyyy) users seem to comply fairly well.  The validator can then be
used to validate that they've entered it correctly.
