<script language = "Javascript">

// Declaring valid date character, minimum year and maximum year
var dtCh= "/";
var minYear=1900;
var maxYear=2100;
 
function isInteger(s){
	var i;
    for (i = 0; i < s.length; i++){   
        // Check that current character is number.
        var c = s.charAt(i);
        if (((c < "0") || (c > "9"))) return false;
    }
    // All characters are numbers.
    return true;
}
 
function stripCharsInBag(s, bag){
	var i;
    var returnString = "";
    // Search through string's characters one by one.
    // If character is not in bag, append to returnString.
    for (i = 0; i < s.length; i++){   
        var c = s.charAt(i);
        if (bag.indexOf(c) == -1) returnString += c;
    }
    return returnString;
}
 
function daysInFebruary (year){
	// February has 29 days in any year evenly divisible by four,
    // EXCEPT for centurial years which are not also divisible by 400.
    return (((year % 4 == 0) && ( (!(year % 100 == 0)) || (year % 400 == 0))) ? 29 : 28 );
}
function DaysArray(n) {
	for (var i = 1; i <= n; i++) {
		this[i] = 31
		if (i==4 || i==6 || i==9 || i==11) {this[i] = 30}
		if (i==2) {this[i] = 29}
   } 
   return this
}
 
function isDate(dtStr){
	var daysInMonth = DaysArray(12)
	var pos1=dtStr.indexOf(dtCh)
	var pos2=dtStr.indexOf(dtCh,pos1+1)
	var strMonth=dtStr.substring(0,pos1)
	var strDay=dtStr.substring(pos1+1,pos2)

	for (var i = 1; i <= 3; i++) {
		if (strYr.charAt(0)=="0" && strYr.length>1) strYr=strYr.substring(1)
	}
	month=parseInt(strMonth)
