Ah, no that makes sense TJ, so Opera's current decision was to present the user with a Date picker and only allow this. Bruce or Anne, where does one file bug or enhancement reports for Opera?

Kind Regards,

HTML5 doesn't specify anything about how the date input is presented.
It's entirely up to the browser to decide if they want to allow the user to type a date in, or just use a datepicker, or what.
