Better date input demo

The following field accepts dates in a variety of formats, including the words "today", "tomorrow" and "yesterday" (or shortenings thereof), variations on "6th October 2003", "next Tuesday" and others.

Note that the default display method for dates is American style (mm/dd/yyyy).
