Actually, I'd be fine with typing a whole YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssTZD
date/time into an ordinary text input field.
But as it seems HTML will have date and time input fields. Taking this
into account I'd be confused to experience different behavior for
different date fields in the same form, i.e. sometimes being able to use
a calendar tool and sometimes not being able to use it.
(Just as Andrew Hayward stated:
I'd also be interested in browser developers' opinion on this? Are you
likely to implement a date selection tool in the coming years? Or accept
dates dropped from another application? I assume this becomes more and
more useful with the growing importance of web applications.

by different people and will be different again on the next website,
although doing the same. Then my e-mail box autoresponder configuration
above. Having all of these implemented by a common browser's date
selection tool would make such standard input elements more accessible
