The date selection capability varies by browser. As of early 2014:
Chrome and Opera have nice little popup gadgets. The dates are in a MM/DD/YYYY format.
Safari has "spinners" to change by one day at a time.. The dates are in a YYYY-MM-DD format.
In Firefox and Explorer, you must type in the dates manually. Use a YYYY-MM-DD format, e.g. 2014-01-21
