Default comparing date/time fields on form validation

Hi there

I have a form which needs validating. I have done most of the validation but am scratching my head regarding 2 of my fields: 'start date/time' and 'end date/time'. Obviously the end date/time cannot be less than the start date/time but i'm not sure how to go about comparing these 2 fields. The format for both fields is 'dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss'.

Any help or pointers in the right directions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Lucy xx
