Hi I had this problem before but realised it was caused by bad JQuery syntax.  I'm a JQuery newbie so please bear with me :-).  It was ever since I added the code to set the date field to tomorrow's date that it started going wrong.  I'd be grateful if someone could tell me where I'm going wrong in my syntax.
