		<p>The jQuery UI Datepicker is a highly configurable plugin that adds datepicker functionality to your pages. You can customize the date format and language, restrict the selectable date ranges and add in buttons and other navigation options easily.</p>

		<p>By default, the datepicker calendar opens in a small overlay when the associated text field gains focus. For an inline calendar, simply attach the datepicker to a div or span.</p>

		<h3>Keyboard interaction</h3>
		<p>While the datepicker is open, the following key commands are available:</p>
		<ul>
			<li>PAGE UP: Move to the previous month.</li>
			<li>PAGE DOWN: Move to the next month.</li>
			<li>CTRL+PAGE UP: Move to the previous year.</li>
			<li>CTRL+PAGE DOWN: Move to the next year.</li>
			<li>CTRL+HOME: Move to the current month. Open the datepicker if closed.</li>
			<li>CTRL+LEFT: Move to the previous day.</li>
			<li>CTRL+RIGHT: Move to the next day.</li>
			<li>CTRL+UP: Move to the previous week.</li>
			<li>CTRL+DOWN: Move the next week.</li>
			<li>ENTER: Select the focused date.</li>
			<li>CTRL+END: Close the datepicker and erase the date.</li>
			<li>ESCAPE: Close the datepicker without selection.</li>
		</ul>

		<h3 id="utility-functions">Utility functions</h3>
		<ul>
			<li>$.datepicker.setDefaults( settings ) - Set settings for all datepicker instances.</li>
			<li>$.datepicker.formatDate( format, date, settings ) - Format a date into a string value with a specified format.</li>
			<li>$.datepicker.parseDate( format, value, settings )  - Extract a date from a string value with a specified format.</li>
			<li>$.datepicker.iso8601Week( date ) - Determine the week of the year for a given date: 1 to 53.</li>
			<li>$.datepicker.noWeekends - Set as beforeShowDay function to prevent selection of weekends.</li>
		</ul>

		<h3>Localization</h3>
		<p>Datepicker provides support for localizing its content to cater for different languages and date formats. Each localization is contained within its own file with the language code appended to the name, e.g., <code>jquery.ui.datepicker-fr.js</code> for French. The desired localization file should be included after the main datepicker code. Each localization file adds its settings to the set of available localizations and automatically applies them as defaults for all instances.</p>
		<p>The <code>$.datepicker.regional</code> attribute holds an array of localizations, indexed by language code, with <code>""</code> referring to the default (English). Each entry is an object with the following attributes: <code>closeText</code>, <code>prevText</code>, <code>nextText</code>, <code>currentText</code>, <code>monthNames</code>, <code>monthNamesShort</code>, <code>dayNames</code>, <code>dayNamesShort</code>, <code>dayNamesMin</code>, <code>weekHeader</code>, <code>dateFormat</code>, <code>firstDay</code>, <code>isRTL</code>, <code>showMonthAfterYear</code>, and <code>yearSuffix</code>.</p>
		<p>You can restore the default localizations with:</p>
		<code>$.datepicker.setDefaults( $.datepicker.regional[ "" ] );</code>
		<p>And can then override an individual datepicker for a specific locale:</p>
		<code>$( selector ).datepicker( $.datepicker.regional[ "fr" ] );</code>
	</div>
<h3>Additional Notes:</h3>
<div class="longdesc"><ul><li>
			This widget requires some functional CSS, otherwise it won't work. If you build a custom theme, use the widget's specific CSS file as a starting point.
		</li></ul></div>
