Date pickers

Figure 7. Expedia date picker

The date picker at Expedia.com was created with Javascript. The advantage of using a date picker for users whose browsers support scripts is the ability to see what dates fall on which days of the week and allowing them to select a date with a mouse rather than text entry. On the other hand, for those users whose browsers don't support scripts, the developers were wise to also provide a text entry option.
