--but David, how would this be entered into a database later on to be
queried.  At least by specifying that the Month has to be entered in this
field, the Date in that field and the Year in another, no matter whether you
are used to write the date as mmddyy or ddmmyy or yymmdd, you can clearly
follow the label for every field.  That's my thought.
