The Coolest DHTML Calendar

The Coolest DHTML Calendar is a DHTML calendar widget that works with IE >= 5.0, Mozilla, Netscape >= 6, all other Gecko-based browsers, Opera 7, Konqueror, and Safari. It comes with eight color themes, and doesn't use frames or external windows, but uses Web standards and is lightning fast. Keyboard navigation is allowed, and it can optionally show a time selector.

This release also contains a lot of fixes, such as better compatibility with Safari, correct keyboard navigation code, a fix to the time selector, and a fix for the date parsing code.

      Release Notes: This release has the ability to display any day as the first day of the week (this can be easily selected by the end-user too, by clicking on the day name). It can optionally display days from overlapping months, in which case the calendar will have a fixed height. The new positioning algorithm will try to keep the popup calendar in page, regardless of the position of the input field. An easy to use PHP wrapper is now provided. There were also many bugfixes, and IE5 compatibility is now back.

            Indredible Product!
            Holy (freaking) cow! I've looked all over for a JavaScript calendar that works half this well! So full-featured, and I couldn't find a modern browser it didn't work in! Thanks!!

            Extreme compliments
            Extremely wel done!
            I've been working on this for some time myself, but yours is more versatile and more pretty.

            One thought: Europe uses ISO week numbers(mostly), but US en UK use: week of 1 januari is week 1.
            BTW. week 0 in januari 2000.
