Nothing, that is how the thing is handled a single double inside singles or
2 doubles they all look the same to me in Arial '"' "" well almost <g> I
have confirmed that the default value in the remote view is {} which means
an empty date in VFP.

Actually what happens is when a date is optional like: Please enter you
birth date (optional)? People may not want to reveal the date and would
like to keep it empty. Now filling this to a date however obscure like
01/01/1245 will have problem when you would like to know about filled birth

Hasn't anybody come across situations like above, if so please let me know
how they have handles it in the past.
