I need a little javascript function that returns the date of today in the format dd/mm/yyyy
September 2, 2003 ==> 02/09/2003
For control reasons, it cannot be 2/9/2003 or 02/9/2003 or 2/09/2003 but only 02/09/2003
December 14, 2003 ==> 14/12/2003
Any idea on how to implement it ?

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4, SCBCD 1.3, SCBCD 5

knock yourself out:

note: change on-click to onclick
[edit] ok my format was mm/dd/yyyy, but I'm sure you can change that.
