A member of my family commented that inputting dates in
the YYYY-MM-DD format seemed awkward. I've got a
function which creates 3 HTML select lists, which I
often use and don't mind posting here when I dig it
out. Not sure whether it's quite the right to use here
though - a drop down list for years would have to be
very long in order to not be restrictive and typing the
numbers in seems quicker to me...
Maybe simply three text input boxes would be better?
