validation w/ javascript (date)

I'm just a newbie so be kind.
Using Struts Validator PlugIn.
I finally have my files lined up and and get my validateRequired() to return when it should but my validateDate() is not working. In fact when I view source I don't even see it in there, the rest are there??? Any ideas? This is the date piece from the validator-rules.xml, it should be pretty much "canned" as I pasted it from an O'Reilly example. I'm not sure if anything else would help, if so let me know. Thanks in advance.

sorry, BLAH_DATE is just so I could find it faster when viewing source. It shouldn't be detremental as it doesn't harm the validateRequired(). Thanks again.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
