I need a jQuery DatePicker

What options do I have when choosing a DatePicker? What plug-in do I use?

Are there various choices that might offer me different interface options? Different calendar GUI's?

Thanks!

Have a look here : http://jqueryui.com/demos/datepicker/
It's part of the jQuery UI library and highly customizable.

I assume i could customize it to allow speedy entry of the year? Requesting a birthday can got back 80+ years...and to need to click 80+ times is a bad user experience.

You can create the datepicker with the following options for example

    yearRange:"-80",
    changeMonth: true,
    changeYear: true
