Re: Accessible and Mobile enabled Date Pickers

Thank you both for sharing; I spent a long time testing with
platforms that I had available.

This one was very good and worked on PC and my Android. Did not have
access to IOS. desktop nor mobile

1. I would like to see a close button, in case I change my mind, I can
get out of it without picking a date. I had to refresh the entire page
to get out of it.

There are inline styles that I can see only in firebug that are
associated with the aria roles... Can these move to the css with a
class as the font attribute is no longer supported in html5 and prefer
not to use inline styling.

Han's demo, http://hanshillen.github.com/jqtest/#goto_datepicker,
worked wonderfully on HTC Incredible 1 Android... However neither
the images were visible, nor was it keyboard accessible on Chrome,
Firefox, or IE8, pc platform.
I need it to work in all devices and platforms..
