    Hi Syed,

    I'm trying to make life simpler. Instead of using a text box for dates where I request the format day/month/year I still get people telling me I have their date of birth wrong, when I read 06 09 1995 as 06 September 1995, so I have to redo their official document with their version of the correct date - 09 June 1995!!!!!

    The problem I have when trying to use 3 drop boxes is that I get:

    Birthdate:  01
                    JAN
                    1930

    I don't want to use the little java pop-up calendar, instead to make it obvious and no mistakes 3 drop down boxes appearing similar to this would be ideal l 01 l JAN l 1930  so that the data I receive would be 09 JUN 1995 as intended.

    Hope this makes sense.
