Inserting client-side JS for validation shouldn't be a problem.  I was 
more concerned with JS in controls (i.e. drop down calendar)

Flexy includes most if not all the functions for generating standard 
HTML controls.  I'm more after customized versions of controls (date 
control, time control, editor controls, etc)

Yeah, I agree, this is more the type of scenario I was getting at.

Actually Flexy used QuickForm for a while and then got rid of it.  Quick 
form was more for implementing entire forms via PHP code and wasn't 
really intended or use in template engines.  Flexy allows you to stub 
out, for example, your list box in the template and the code that 
generates it is in the view.  I have an example of this one or more of 
the views in the sample code that you and Dirk are yet to get working 
(sorry, shameless dig).
