Inserts in generated content a text field control, configured for parsing and formatting dates. This control can be used to edit the value of the element which is the target of the CSS rule. If "
attribute, " is specified, this control can be used to edit the value of an attribute of this target element.
date-field is used to convert a date specified using a normal, localized, format to/from a standard format. For example, the user sees and types something like "
03/16/60" in the field (pattern is "
MM/dd/yy") and the date actually stored in the XML document is "
The date stored in the XML contains no time zone information, unless the date format specified by the
pattern option contains a
Z field. Example: the user sees and types something like "
60/03/16 02:15 PM +0100" in the field (pattern is "
yy/MM/dd hh:mm a Z") and the date actually stored in the XML document is "
date-field just converts a date format to another. The
date-field is not used to validate what the user has typed. As always, the schema of the document is used to perform this validation. Therefore, beware that, when used with a DTD (which unlike W3C XML Schema or RELAX NG does not support data typing), a
date-field allows the user to input incorrect date/time values.
