JS is generally used for enhancing a site. If a user doesn't want it on, that's
fine, they can use Bugzilla without it without any loss of functionality. This
is an enhancement though and the people that typically care about this sort of
thing are end users who do have JS on. This is a client related thing and we
shouldn't do client things on the server side. Plus I bet there is some
interest in keeping the DB size down.
Anyway, get a reference to the span element and there are various ways to get at
its text. Probably using .innerText or .innerHTML is the easiest. Though
non-standardized, it's an extension that MS and we support. If you want it to
use DOM standards, then use spanElt.childNodes.nodeValue. You don't need to
be all that creative for times.
<span name="foo">January 1, 1970 23:00</span>
var dates = document.getElementsByName("foo");
Then just iterate through the dates nodeList. So long as you make sure you
don't assign name="foo" to anything else other than a date, you're fine.
