Sliders in HTML

Web Forms 2.0 which is set to become part of HTML 5 and is being supported by Opera, Mozilla and Apple will be adding some new HTML input types. One of those is range, which user agents may represent as a slider control.

However, if you can’t wait and want sliders today, it’s been implemented using JavaScript/DHTML. It can be styled pretty well up to the point where it looks like a native widget (see demo). I’m not sure how backwards compatible it is, but it seems like a nice use of Javascript/DHTML and could make form input a lot easier in some cases.
