I guess most websites would handle this by returning the same form
with error message and extra hints, not like the demo that just tells
you to use the back button.

Ian should add that. If I'm not mistaken the discussion on the list
concluded that the best option was to check the "type" property of
the input element. It should be "text" if the UA does not support
datetime. So, Ian could add to his onload handler:
and use this to check whether or not to run the fixup functions.

Have a server fallback that returns the same form with error messages
and hints is best practise. As simple as that.
