<option value="3">March</option>
  ..... snipped .....
<option value="10">October</option>

<option value="12" selected="selected">December</option>
</select>
<select name="Date_Day">
<option value="1">01</option>
<option value="2">02</option>
<option value="3">03</option>
  ..... snipped .....
<option value="11">11</option>
<option value="12">12</option>
<option value="13" selected="selected">13</option>

{* start and end year can be relative to current year *}
{html_select_date prefix='StartDate' time=$time start_year='-5'
   end_year='+1' display_days=false}

  

With 2000 as the current year the output:


<select name="StartDateMonth">
<option value="1">January</option>
<option value="2">February</option>
.... snipped ....
<option value="11">November</option>
<option value="12" selected="selected">December</option>

The descriptions of "month_format" and "month_names" are switched.
