Oh I agree as a date picker I really like Bikir's. Problem is, the client
(a Gov't Office) wants a month/week/day view that they can use for
scheduling, but our/their 508 person keeps telling us that the month/week
view isn't compliant because the tables don't have scoping/etc. And if we
can find something that works I'd much prefer that than to go about and try
redoing the fullcalendar.io month/week views.
