Displaying date input values using javascript

A minor annoyance you might not consider at first working with HTML 5 date type inputs:

The input's valueAsDate will be: "2008-10-29 18:00:00 -0600 CST" - Errr... What?

One huge stopping point I ran into was in the deployment of web services via steps 4 and 5 of their videos. Everything 'looks' like it works fine, until you reach the testing interface. If you've followed their steps you'll come across this error:
