[Seaside] Request help with JQuery datepicker widget

Have you looked at a javacript console in your browser to see if there 
are any javascript errors?

If not there's one built in to Safari and Chrome but for firefox you 
have to load the Firebug extension.  It'll tell you if every resource 
that was needed for the page was loaded and whether there are errors 

What happens if you just use a text input directly like so:

date:=DateAndTime now.

html textInput
	script: (html jQuery this datepicker onSelect: html jQuery ajax 
	callback:[:val | date:= val].

instead of loading the functional test?
