I released a first draft of formsplus.php,
for use with markup (:input ...:),
which offers form extensions adding new input types 'date', 'datetime',
'datetime-local', 'time', 'week', 'month', 'number', 'email', 'url',
'tel', 'search', 'color', 'range', as well as 'frame' = 'fieldset',
'frameend' = 'fieldsetend', 'label',

see http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/FormsPlus

Apart from 'frame' (='fieldset') and 'label', which enjoy wide
browser support, all others are new and browser support is sketchy, only Opera
supports these new types fully. Other browsers revert to use the new
types as standard text input boxes. In time new browser versions will
offer custom rendered controls, like Opera's calender date selector,
and its color selector. 

Comments and suggestions are most welcome!
