HTML Date and Its Example

HTML Date :

input elements of type date create input fields that let the user enter a date, either using a text box that automatically validates the content, or using a special date picker interface. The resulting value includes the year, month, and day, but not the time.

Originally, the date input attribute was designed as a form element to pick values through a datepicker. The problem however, lies in the implementation of datepicker which changes from browser to browser.

What it essentially means is that as a web designer you must be intending to allow user to pick a date in the format YYYY/MM/DD via datepicker and you designed your HTML validations accordingly, but when the user accesses the webpage through the browser on his system, he might see a completely different sequence of selections depending upon the default date settings in his/her system and the browser used.
