here's a link to a awesome datepicker script..

http://www.electricprism.com/aeron/calendar/


one question, Is there a way to use aeron calendar without linking it to an input field, but just have it show constantly on the page?

Yes, but only with some major tweaking. Its dependence on MooTools is a bad thing from a tweaking perspective, because the code is obscure to anyone who isn't intimately familiar with the API. (I use [] below to group phrases because my sentences were getting confusing.)

You'll need to
understand how [the name of the single property of the first argument to Calendar] becomes the id of the text input and remove the association,
attach [whatever action is currently attached to the button's onclick handler] to window.onload instead,
change the onclick handlers for the dates to [do whatever you're wanting] instead of filling the text inputs.

Or, if you're feeling especially adventurous, you could rewrite [the DOM modifications made by that script] as HTML.
