Subject RE: Struts Taglibs
Date Mon, 09 Dec 2002 21:33:23 GMT
I don't know of any previous attempt to do this.  Personally, for dates I 
use 3 select boxes so the masking idea for that particular type of data 
isn't worthwhile to me.  That doesn't mean there aren't other interesting 
uses for this.
